we treat requests for new subtags, so I don't have to manage
Therefore, I would like to request that you forward, in separate
messages, the seven messages to this list. This will also have the
advantage of making the entire process transparent, which is
something that is a concern to some.
So instead of asking me to check your website regularly for updates
of this kind, and instead of you sending me a list of them all in one
e-mail privately, please send them one-by-one to this list.
Please make sure the subject line is clear and unambiguous, thus:
