Sorry this patch ended up out of sequence. I reposted it properly again in the other thread.

We did talk about using gmail address, but Linas was more comfortable using this as this is
where he was, when we did this. Hence the use of Austin address with gmail being on the cc list.

I am sure he will chime in with more details about it when he gets the opportunity.
