Hi @dcaro @aborrero, is anyone working on this?

I did set a priority (and I'm removing the SRE tag, which... I can't figure why would be there).

Hi, yes, @abogott is working on it, see the task arturo pointed to, shouldn't take long to get addressed, if this is very critical for you don't hesitate to tell us why and we'll give it higher priority (and/or work around it if needed).
