Well the people on the list are historical and with Dialog now part of Renesas
it's possible responsibilities will need to be re-aligned. Honestly, that's out
of my scope of knowledge at this point. My aim was simply to prevent the
existing mailing address from lapsing and removing any opportunity for support.

However, I think I'll have to defer this task to other colleagues as the
decision making will ultimately not be mine. Thanks again for your input.
