18 Er massive feedback about what exactly? The point of this list is to discuss
19 non-technical aspects of development. Can't we just do that without a
20 massive survey?

32 Why not just do a massive campaign to inform users of the list and ask them
33 to post here if they have any concerns about the direction gentoo is
34 taking, how they contribute and whatever else is on their minds (so long as
35 it's not support!) Although to be honest, how to get involved is already
36 covered on the forums:
38 (2nd and 3rd posts)
39 ..and this list will hopefully be a good place for all the non-code stuff.
41 Bugzilla is your friend, and don't forget #gentoo-dev-help, #bash and
42 #friendly-coders on :-)
