Hi Adonay, thanks for taking this up!

So what does it say? AFAIK it seems that LibreJS fails to recognize a
number of Brotli-compressed assets. But I see no non-free code over
there. What would help LibreJS to go green? I guess some licensing tag
in the HTML would help it, but apart from that I see no reason to
change the FSD approval: do you see any?

The From: email address is configurable, so you can use a no-reply
email. Actually I came to create a private category for Staff and
assign it the 'no-reply' address, so that any reply comes to that as a
new topic ; you may also assign the address to a group so it becomes
like a support email.
