I confess to not being perfect, and making mistakes.  I also apologize
for them in general, and this one specifically.

It's crucial to my reporting mechanism that you use the "For
Approval:" prefix on your email's subject.  There's far too much
chatter on license-discuss for me to be able to pick out discussion of
a license unless it occurs under a structured subject.

It bounces when you send it email which isn't an approval request.  I
installed that filter because of the incredibly HUGE amount of
unwanted email that an address published on the Internet for nearly
ten years receives.
