     16                <p>The <a href="http://darwinports.opendarwin.org/docs">DarwinPorts
     17                        Guide</a> has a section for DarwinPorts users,
     18                        <a href="http://darwinports.opendarwin.org/docs/pt01.html">Part
     19                        1: Using DarwinPorts</a>.

    16       <p>The <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/mailman/listinfo/darwinports">darwinports
    17         mailing list</a> is open to all and is where most architectural and
    18         feature discussions are held.  It is also the place to ask questions
    19         if you have any.</p>
     21                <p>The DarwinPorts FAQ will reappear soon.</p>

    21       <p>Those interested in seeing the commits to the CVS repository can

    23         mailing list.</p>
     23                <p>All of our documentation is a work in progress, so if you spot

     30                        <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/mailman/listinfo/darwinports">darwinports
     31                        mailing list</a> is open to all.  It is the best place to ask
     32                        questions about DarwinPorts, for new users, developers,
     33                        everyone alike!  It is also where all discussion about
     34                        DarwinPorts takes place.  Please note that due to spam problems,
     35                        the DarwinPorts mailing list requires posts from
     36                        non-subscribers to be approved.  It may be better to subscribe
     37                        to the list.</p>

    27       <p>For more real-time discussion, the #opendarwin channel on the <a
    28         href="http://freenode.net/">freenode IRC network</a> is generally
    29         where we hang out.</p>
     39                <p>You may check the
     40                        <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/pipermail/darwinports/">darwinports
     41                        mailing list archives</a> before posting a question, although
     42                        it's not necessarily a requirement.  We try to be as helpful as
     43                        possible, but if it's a common question, our answers may be
     44                        fairly short.</p>
     45
     46                <p>When you post a question to the mailing list, please included
     47                        any information you think might be relevent to the problem,
     48                        such as what operating system and version you're using (OS X
     49                        10.3.2, for example), whether you have any other third party
     50                        software installed /usr/local (for example), and any error
     51                        messages that DarwinPorts might give.  It's a lot easier for
     52                        us to help you if we have too much information than if we
     53                        don't have enough.</p>

    31       <p>Though it is generally helpful, please keep in mind that no one is
    32         obligated to help or even answer your question if you join the IRC
    33         channel.  Do not take it personally, simply ask your question
    34         on the <a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/mailman/listinfo/darwinports">darwinports
    35         mailing list</a> instead.</p>
