Nothing really has happened in one year. Is there any value in keeping this task open? @Johan, if you want to keep track of this as a volunteer, this is fine of course, but then maybe better with a volunteer account? Otherwise I would just close it or detach it completely from our team boards & members. (For personal reminders Phabricator offers flags as well.)
