Author’s Note

Up front, I’m the reason this repo was archived. I’d almost finished this post when I emailed the Medium customer support team and asked for clarification on the repo.

An email from Jessica Schalz (me) to the Medium support team. I ask if they can enable issues in the repo, or update it if it isn’t formally maintained.
Include links/info for your support teams and make their lives easier.
