Hi all,

I do support this idea/proposal and both teams whether we agreed to join
forces or not, you all have my full help and support :)

I have more than one role and do many tasks but what is related to this
subject/matter, I am the QA Lead of Ubuntu GNOME and Ubuntu Quality Social
Media Administrator.

Looking forward to work together and share everything :)

Thank you!
