Here is what Eric and I did to group Dan Berger's list - this is  
without autoassigns figured out yet:

Language / Runtime / Core Libraries: autoassign = shyouhei

     ruby binary
     Array / Hash / all classes defined in the binary
     Performance / Memory - all runtime issues

Documentation, ri, rdoc: autoassign = Eric Hodel

Security: autoassign = shyouhei

     Exploits / DOS / etc.
