Yes, please use tech-pkg. It may be a waste of time to discuss same issue
Also, you can send patches via send-pr (to NetBSD's gnats for "pkg"). Or
in many cases, you can email the maintainers directly -- be polite and ask
them where they would prefer discussion or patches submitted.
Do not email pkgsrc-bugs to report bugs. It is for messages from GNATS and
related to existing pkgsrc PRs.
Do not email pkgsrc-changes; they are CVS commit messages.
pkgsrc-bulk is for sharing the reports from using the pkgsrc/mk/bulk
framework. It also has a little mk/bulk related discussion.
Steve: your patch is committed. Thanks!

p.s. Anyone know the metamail code? Anyone interested in checking all
Debian, SuSE, Red Hat, FreeBSD, pkgsrc, et cetera, patches for old mm2.7
to make a metamail3 release? Please let me know.
