Hi Bernhard,

Thank you for sharing your personal Trello board. It is very useful! Can
people help in those tasks being of yours? Maybe I can mention you
Kanban Board besides the current collaboration and documentation pages
of the Reproducible Builds website in a presentation I will share in
Spanish. Tell me if is possible to do it or not to respect your
decision. By the way. Is this tool mentioned somewhere in the RB
website? I
was looking if it is listed at the Reproducible Builds tools page but I did not find it. I have
visited the ismypackagereproducibleyet Git Repo and the
project looks nice,
