Hey Robin,

Thanks so much for setting out some standard practices as a reminder as we
start shipping to Luminita and each other too.  I’d be happy to compile any
other suggestions as they come in for the group? May be a nice thing to
send out every March just as a reminder.  Also a shout out to Luminita
again for compiling and shipping over 80 pkgs to all of us this week.
Thank You Luminita!
