[sane-devel] Clarification: SANE Developer Status Reconfirmation Request

The email below was sent to sane-devel on behalf of the project
admins, Gerhard, Olaf, and myself.

Our intention is to get a more accurate list of who should still have
commit permissions in our git repo, edit permissions in the bug
tracker, etc. The intended audience is effectively those listed on
this page: https://alioth.debian.org/project/memberlist.php?group_id=30186
If you are a mailing list member not listed on that page, there is no
need for you to respond. The sane-devel mailing list remains open for
everyone to contribute, and there is no official role or requirements
for inclusion in the discussions here.

Thanks for your understanding and support-
