Hi Malte,

I think this is an excellent idea, thanks for proposing it.  I suggest
<[hidden email]> unless it is too long to type (our <[hidden email]>
alias gets a surprising number of messages from folks wanting card-key
access
to a particular building...).  If address length is an issue, 'a11y' is
becomming a common abbreviation, like 'i18n' is for
'internatinalization'.  So
another choice would be <[hidden email]>.


Regards,
