Hi all, Geary is looking for a co-maintainer!

@mjog doesn't have enough time to to do it all by themselves any more, and so is looking for a hand in taking care of day-to-day tasks such as bug triaging and fixing, and working on improving the front-end side of the app in particular.

If you're interested, take a look at the issue tracker, and pitch on in!

If you have any questions, please thread them below or get in touch with @mjog 馃憞

Cheers!

@geary great update again, the responsiveness is nice

For what it's worth, here's a likely very incomplete THANKS file:

gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/geary/-

Geary is Free Software, being built by people, for people. 鉁岋笍 鉂わ笍 馃捇

Also to people who have been donating cash on Librepay (you know who you are), and the many people who report bugs and follow through with more information and testing when required.

All of the bug reporting, updating, and testing are just as essential as the development and translation work, and Geary wouldn't be as solid as it without that. So, thanks!

If you'd like to contribute, regardless of whether you can code or not, there's a bunch of helpful ways listed here: wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Geary/Cont

While we have for a while been making sure that people who make code and translation contributions to Geary are acknowledged in the NEWS and THANKS files, we haven't really been acknowledging people who have been contributing in other ways. While we figure that out, here's a stop-gap list of people:

* Andre Klapper (bug triaging)
* Federico Bruni (bug reporting and fix testing, Discourse answering)
* Martin Mayer (bug wrangling and updating)
* Tobias Bernard (interface design)

@geary it looks GORGEOUS, it looks substantially better.

Now hoping for a GTK4 version soon.

Finally, the Geary Privacy Policy has been published, describes how Geary collects, uses, transmits and stores personal information.

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on the draft.

As usual, Geary 40 is the product of a large number of contributions from the community, including a number of people contributing improvements for the first time.

Geary is maintained and developed by people from the community, nearly everyone volunteers their time. If you are keen to help out, there's a bunch of ways to contribute: triage bugs, translate the graphical interface, fix bugs or implement new features, and more: wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Geary/Cont

PSA: Since there's been some questions around using Geary with MS Exchange (and Davmail) lately, the FAQ has been updated to describe best to do this: wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Geary/FAQ#

Geary packagers and hackers! We're considering requiring a build profile to be required for `meson setup` to succeed, can we get your input on this change?
