Even derivative open source projects tend to provide their own fora for bug reports, etc. (see, for example, PC-BSD and pfSense). If a bug reported in their system is the result of a bug in FreeBSD then it ends up being logged as a FreeBSD issue as well, but the latter part is what occurs on FreeBSD lists. > 4.

I think CFTs are fine for now. However, I think you should strive to setup your own lists for support and general petitecloud-specific discussion on petitecloud.org itself.

You own this domain so you are free to do with it as you wish as far as I am concerned. If you wish to work with the Foundation you can e-mail their board to discuss that further. -- John Baldwin _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
