If you are looking for a wider reach grrltalk would be ok too, i
guess. I'll also forward this to indichix.

" When speaking of women in the IT industry, it is not uncommon for
many folks to (un)knowingly confuse unpaid women volunteers in FLOSS

As someone who does not earn a living from the IT industry its fairly
amusing to see folks trot out statistics even today. So I just wanted
to say a big "thankyou" for publicly acknowledging this and apologise
for not directly helping out with Fedora QA -- its debian and ubuntu
for me :)
