I can type in what I know. It would be fine if someone could find / write
a program to let others enter their knowledge into the system as well.
I think the information should be more specific than "I have used XXX and
it worked". More like "I have used XXX for Y months on Z; XXX didn't
work under NetBSD n.m but it has been working just fine since version
k.l. Performance is good and I have never seen problems with XXX once
it started working. I use features A, B, and C of XXX, but I have no idea
if feature D works. XXX is known to be compatible with YYY and ZZZ.
My system is an Internet server with i users, so XXX is being used heavily."
I'll try to put together some info and post the URL sometime soon.. I'm
overloaded already but I want to do _something_ to help with the NetBSD
