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 slower. 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 differently.) 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. :) Regards, Ferris - -- Ferris McCormick (P44646, MI) <fmccor@g.o> Developer, Gentoo Linux (sparc, devrel) -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (GNU/Linux) iD8DBQFDBRGyQa6M3+I///cRAtcBAJ9t421vwPY/9pp6F9QKCeG8q3Ok2gCeLsv2 XuvDPYGgdQ7xE2sFwOur9fU= =mGfN -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-sparc@g.o mailing list
