20.1 Don't post DJGPP-specific problems to GNU News groups

Q: I post my problem to the gnu.gcc.help news group, but don't get any answers....

A: Is your problem likely to be special to the DJGPP port or to the DOS environment? If so, don't post to GNU Usenet groups, but to the comp.os.msdos.djgpp news group or to the DJGPP mailing list. People who read GNU News groups usually neither know nor care about DOS-specific problems. Post there only if the problem seems to be generic to one of the GNU utilities on any platform. For most problems, this can be deduced only after either tracing a problem in the source code or testing it on some non-DOS platform. As a general rule, always post to the DJGPP forums first.
