Do I still have that? Yeah, it can be dropped. The idea was to record 
who exactly caused the event, i.e. who changed the patch status, but I 
can't do this using signals and ROI isn't significant enough to changing 
this. I'll remove for the final version.

I've been thinking an '/events' API endpoint for now. This would require 
polling from CIs etc., but it would be a good first step.
