If the feedback is in the nature of bugs, then bugs.g.o is fine. If the 
feedback is in the nature of comments or general requests for information, 
then the freenode channel #gentoo-sparc is often pretty good.  Also, there
is a fairly active sparc forum at, but response is 

Also, you can send your comments in mail like this, but addressed to 
gentoo-sparc@g.o (instead of sparc@g.o), as in how I changed 
the address on this note.  gentoo-sparc@... has a much wider distribution 
so is more likely to get a response to your notes.

There are certainly sparc-32 users around (I admit to having an SS20), so 
don't let that slow you down.  Feedback of the nature you are describing 
is always welcome.  (Translation, I like to see it, and I'm the one 
responding right now.  Others, of course, might be responding 

Doubtless others will have different opinions, so you will have the option 
of picking and choosing, then pointing to whoever's suggestions you are 
following. :)
