Hi Hartmut,

Please know that what I said to Michael applies to you just the same. 
Send me a private message through Jitsi, an e-mail to alberto at abrao.net, 
or just a text message to - or call - 204-558-6886.

Also, if any of you - or both - are willing, we can schedule a time for 
a quick meeting to sort these issues out together.

We want to make sure everyone can join our virtual gatherings, 
especially now that it looks like we will be doing them electronically 
for... well, the foreseeable future, I guess. :S


Kind regards,
Alberto Abrao
