Long overdue, but I finally added a "thank you" page for all the people who helped out with the development of LibUp over the years: https://libraryupgrader2.wmcloud.org/credits

We would like to use this opportunity to let you know that K-9 Mail needs your help.
We're starting a #Wikimedia #Rust developers user group! https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Rust_developers_user_group
My announcement to wikitech-l https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2021-February/094272.html has more details on our goals so far.
