It depends on the issue. I'd suggest the following policy:

1. If it is a build problem, take a look at the results from the last
bulk build. If something stops building or you need something which is
currently broken (and does not depend on net-snmp :-)), mail me or the
maintainer directly. Note that the bulk builds use a stricter setup than
the normal userland / pkgsrc tree, so some packages can work to a
certain degree, but still be reported as broken.

2. If it is a general problem or question for a specific package or the
infrastructure, pkgsrc-users at xxxxxxxxxx is the best address.

3. If you feel this is a DragonFly specific issue (e.g. something
doesn't behave as expected), users at xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is a good start.
