Thanks for pointing out the reverse order thing.  That is the order they 
show up in the mailing list archives.  But is probably more useful for us

Yes, there is an "Edit this issue" link under "Operations" on the left of 
the issue details screen.  Do you see that?  Or is it only available to TC 
Chairs?  Make sure you are logged in.

I don't see any easy heuristic for automatically assigning these details.
