@Urbanecm I'm not sure if I'm supposed to assign this to you directly, as you have handled all our past IP lift requests. I added you as subscriber. Let me know what is the correct approach in the future. TX

Urbanecm triaged this task as Medium priority.

You even don't need to add me as a subscriber, I receive noticications about all such requests ;). Please do not assign anyone (except yourself) to any tasks without consulting. Those requests can be handled by absolutely anyone, if you want to, I can teach you how to do it ;).
