Me too - though I'm agnostic about using the ps2dev stuff; if it's
convenient, I'll use it, but if not, I won't go to any particular
lengths to make it work.

I'm not sure this would be a particularly good place.  This list *is*
about NetBSD on the PS2.

There is a mailing list for the ps2dev stuff; while the listowner says
few people use it any more (apparently preferring the Web "forum"),
it's still up and working.

I'd also be happy to host a list, as long as it stays small (I'd be
managing it by hand).  In fact, given how cheap such a thing is to set
up, I did so.  Since I don't want the list address to be too
web-accessible, I'm not putting it in this message; I'll write to you
off-list and tell you, and anyone else who wants is welcome to write me
for it too.
