Subject Extra step in build environment
Date Mon, 02 Aug 1999 20:20:39 GMT

As to make the binary build's easier to manage; I'd like to add an explict
hint to the how-to-release.html file to contact specific people for
binaries builds on their platforms. 

Specifically those platforms which do not have native compilers normally,
or who are just not used that way.

Today I think that the burden is a bit high on someone who does want to
contribute an occasional build, but just cannot cope with the 20+ messages
a day on new-httpd. 

So a hint in the docs well as along with the STATUS either a little file
with contacts or a ' mailing list;  where we keep tab's
on the exotic pieces of hardware, and who might be committed/volunteering
to do those. 

Plus have those contacts visible on the web site :-) which works positive
both ways. I would _not_ go as far as tie-ing those names/emails in with
bugtraq quite yet. Though perhaps some more corperate contacts would in
fact perhaps like this.

I count some 76 platforms in Configure ;-) It would be nice to get a
good part filled. Anyone any objections ? Better ideas ?
