I understand. My understanding is that part of the job of this
team is to find people that have various different types of
environments that could be used for testing like this, and put them
together with the necessary development personnel.

There's been some talk of freebsd-qa, but so far the only thing I
recall being said is that the sort of thing we're talking about doing
is not what this list has been used for in the past. We were kind of
wondering where we could take this particular effort, and if we could
commandeer the freebsd-qa list for this purpose.

We will be moving the conversation to somewhere more appropriate,
but I don't know when or where.
I believe that our biggest problem at the moment is finding the
necessary development types to help us debug the problems and get
them sorted out -- we've got people who have hardware, and would be
more than willing to help test things out, but in the past they
haven't gotten much help from the developers.
