+Help needed: testers/maintainer for specific environments/OS
+The current maintainer uses and tests git-multimail on Linux with the
+Generic environment. More testers, or better contributors are needed
+to test git-multimail on other real-life setups:
+* Mac OS X, Windows: git-multimail is currently not supported on these
+ platforms. But since we have no external dependencies and try to
+ write code as portable as possible, it is possible that
+ git-multimail already runs there and if not, it is likely that it
+ could be ported easily.
+ Patches to improve support for Windows and OS X are welcome.
+ Ideally, there would be a sub-maintainer for each OS who would test
+ at least once before each release (around twice a year).
+* Gerrit, Stash, Gitolite environments: although the testsuite
+ contains tests for these environments, a tester/maintainer for each
+ environment would be welcome to test and report failure (or success)
+ on real-life environments periodically (here also, feedback before
+ each release would be highly appreciated).
