Default Suggestion to ask devs to change their bugzilla name when becoming "devaway"

Hello

Currently, we only need to set a proper message in ~/.away (as talked in
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/devrel/roll-call/devaway.xml ) when
becoming "devaway". The problem is that a lot of our users don't know
about that devaway list and, then, they will still open bug reports and
complaint when their reports get stalled due maintainer not being
available.

My suggestion (until http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=256934 is
solved) is to add a new step to "how to use the Devaway System"
instructions asking people to also change their bugzilla name appending
"(Devaway)", for example:

"Pacho Ramos" would be changed to "Pacho Ramos (Deavaway)"

Then, people could simply search "devaway" in google and would get
proper information (gentoo devway page is the first shown)

Thanks
