as discussed yesterday in the confcall, we're planning to give out official LibreOffice e-mail accounts to people who are community members per the membership committee's decision. (For information on the membership committee, refer to yesterday's confcall as well. It will be online as audio recording soon.)

My plan is to hand out only e-mail forwarders, not real mailboxes with POP and IMAP, as the latter one requires lots of maintenance.

I'd like to avoid subdomains (, as they are really ugly for e-mail accounts.

What are your thoughts?
