Hi Peter,

I'm about to make a standardised email text for the new jabber services. 
I will send those to the postmaster /hostmaster / webmaster addresses as 
you've mentioned. Do you think it is ok if i send those through my email 
address? Or should i use an "official" one? Can you provide me with an 
official email address like slux at xmpp.org or something like that?

All the best and happy eastern,
