I tend to inform the author if it's someone I know (even passingly), but
I think you raise a good point about the author needing to at least know
that their module is affected. Doubly so if we think it's an error they
need to fix and we do not intend to undo.

I think Karl's suggestion is the very minimum of communication we can
provide the author to keep them in the loop. If it's eventually resolved
on our end, they wouldn't need to do a thing, but they would at least
know. If we determine they had a bug, they would see it in the

It's a valuable step to add to the process.
