you're right the reassignment was wrong. I missed that when I was reassigning
the bugs to new packages.

I thought I already sent that to redmine maintainer and the result was that it's
the redmine which needs the update.

Adam, could you please elaborate on this? Do you mean the correct fix for rails
or for redmine?
