I think the reports should go to the NetBSD pkgsrc-bulk lists so
NetBSD people see how it's going. And maybe a link on the DragonFly
homepage to those archives.

For us, wouldn't a weekly mail to kernel@ with the last reports be
enough? If it can be automated that is. Don't want to make you
reformat and manually mail them :)
