Hi folks-

Glad to serve and to support the cause, and thank you to all of you for
your ongoing development of Thunderbird!

If anyone plans to be in Dublin for the ICANN, PM me and I'll make sure to

The main session to watch as it relates to TB is on Sunday 18th of October,
and it is scheduled at 13:00-14:00 local Dublin time.  There is a session

remote participation.  It incorrectly says there is not Remote
Participation available, but this should be corrected soon.

·       Demonstration (Recorded demonstration of interoperability in action
or otherwise)

·       Outreach – Apple, Yahoo (Brent London)

day long event.  Details should be posted soon (I leave that ambiguous
because I am not in control of when, but it should be in advance of the

If any of you do attend, or you want me to attend some of these with a
Thunderbird hat on I can do it and report back.  I'll be there anyway.


In service,
