FYI

I have sent an email to cores to ask if I am OK to bring another but
closely related to this issue to open discussions, whose details have
already been sent to them. The reason why I'm asking is, if this issue
could be open, then the issue might be open too and that makes
discussions easier.

At this point, I get no response from them so far.
