Hi Josh,

Thanks for the update. I would like to make a suggestion. When there are updates to the Wikipedia mobile apps for Android or iOS, would you consider cross-posting the announcements to the Wikipedia-l mailing list? I think that cross-posting occasional announcements to Wikitech-l and/or Wikimedia-l would be okay too, but I especially suggest Wikipeda-l. Announcements for updates to the Commons mobile app are already sent occasionally to the Commons mailing list, and my suggestion here is to adopt a similar practice for the Wikipedia mobile apps.
