Simply read the mails and those from the other critics again, it's not

everybody else to read it again.
Nevertheless just saying "everything's fine" or "you only complained about
ssh" won't really solve the issues, but just help to wave these changes

Any other wishes to please your MUA? Different character encoding? MIME?
