Hi Sam,

I am aware of the current issue with the a11yTF database/mailing list snafu
(which now appears to be fixed). That said, a review of your 2 posts of
today in the archives shows that even if there were no issue with the
public-html-a11y list, you still neglected to include that list on your CC:

Current problems with the a11yTF list aside, my request is that when
accessibility related notices go out, that you remember to copy the a11yTF
list at the same time you copy the public-html list, which based upon the
above, did not happen today. 

This has been an ongoing (if only mildly frustrating) issue for some time
now, and to his credit, Paul has remembered to Fwd some of *his* emails to
the a11yTF list after the fact (with his apologies).

However, as we begin to focus in on closing accessibility related Issues and
Straw Polls, I request that greater care be applied to not miss this
request/requirement moving forward.

Thanks!
