Somebody should contact Alexander and Julian to let them know, that we
are working on the matter. It should be somebody "official" for the
initial contact, too. I've included Guido (BDFL), Barry (their initial
security contact) and MvL (most prominent German core dev) in CC, as
they are the logical choice for me.
I'm willing to have a phone call with them once the contact has been
established. IMHO it's slightly easier to talk in native tongue --
Alexander and Julian are German, too.
