I'd like more details from people who have seen cases.  Is it because
(1) Asterisk sees how the commentary is trending on an issue and
     contacts the submitter?
(2) A commenter sees the issue &c?
(3) A herald who is not a commenter sees the issue &c?
(4) The submitter themself is following the commentary on their own item
     and offers a fix or comment without prompting?
I'm asking because I've heard cases of whoever was running the
decision meeting saying "I'll contact the submitter to see whether
she'll allow that change" or whatever.  That is, I've seen (1) above,
but not heard of (2..4).
