The link is in the footer of every message I send???
Joined a Fedora Mentoring list long ago, but it must have been a dead list.
Got a welcome message, but then message to list gave no responses.
The link in the footer points to g4l, but nothing in your message
mentioning jetcat-mod makes that connection. Only an off-list message
from you explained it, and you then repeated the information on-list.
