Hi Eugen!

You're right, there is some issue in our ask.o.o notifications that 
renders them useless. Ask.o.o is in a sad state right now due to lack of 
maintenance and interest in our community. This has prompted several 
discussions on the openstack-infra list in the past about dropping it, 
but so far no definitive action...
