The above email was sent in 26th of October, 2013 :)

This was posted on our website on the 3rd of November, 2013:

Same Call for Help had been posted on our Social Media: Twitter, Goolge+
and Facebook.

Good News?
We have so many replies and interested people.

ONLY FEW are active and I have NO idea where is the rest? :(

Sad but true. While I can't deny I was expecting that but I set my hope so
high and was really interested to see more interested people.

Having that said, and to re-remind you of this email:

Please be informed that we DO NEED more help, support and contribution.
Otherwise, and let me be super honest here, having an LTS release might be
really hard if not impossible.

Not trying to be negative here but rather honest and realistic. We are all
volunteers here. We appreciate your intentions but we do need your actual

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who responded
to our call of help and actually did contribute and still. THANK YOU so

Happy Holidays everyone :)
