Action Items

Friends of the Tree

Suggestion (protz): Hiroshi Shirosaki has been submitting quite a few patches for Enigmail support in Thunderbird Conversations, and also a small patch for Enigmail. It's rare to have contributors for Thunderbird Conversations, so if there's no better suggestion, I'd be glad to see that person get a t-shirt :-).

Thanks to our Friend of the Tree. When adding someone to this section, please get their T-Shirt size, phone number (needed for shipping!) and send it to so that he can send them a shirt!
