	We have a relatively low volume list for mail sent to We're looking for people willing to handle
	responses to this list for a week or so at a time. You'll be on
	the list all the time, but you only have to answer the email for
	short periods :)

	The work basically involves replying to each message with one of:
	a) Pointing them at an FAQ (Hopefully this will become a
	   larger proportion as the FAQs grow...)
	b) Answering the question directly (and ideally sending in another
	   entry for an FAQ)
	c) Forwarding them to a more appropriate list (port-sparc, etc).
	d) Punting and forwarding it to someone else (maybe me :) to
	   answer (or not be able to answer :).

	Mayby not the most glamorous of aspects of helping NetBSD, but
	definitely an important aspect advocacy wise - you will be having
	to respond to vendors as well as users on occasions.

	If anyone is interested... drop me a line.
