Subject Re: Action Items from 2017 GSOC Retrospective
Date Wed, 13 Sep 2017 08:22:05 GMT
I have joined the dev list following a tweet from Myrle Krantz in the hope
that I could offer some assistance with security reviews.
I do not wish to be subscribed to the Jira/Dev/Bug-fix notifications
distribution.  Is there some other less noisy comms channel please?

Kind regards,
