We should restrict it to official devs for now because it's not a read-only 
thing and we don't want just anyone modifying the severity/resolution of 
warnings. Much as the help would be appreciated we don't want the hard work of 
triaging to be undone either accidentally or maliciously.

An official dev is anyone with a mythtv.org email address and we should sign 
people up with those addresses.
