It is not clear where one should discuss these issues at the moment.
Sometimes discussion appears on current-users, on netbsd-help, on
netbsd-users and sometimes on the individual port lists (which of course
is okay provided it only involves that port).

This is unfortunately a "con" of having the list, but it might serve as a
forum for "Has anyone else seen this?" which may encourage people to send
PRs who would otherwise not send them. It doesn't do any harm to reply
with a "send-pr please" message.
