I don't see how the users are getting lost. Almost all emails clearly
describe on what kind of machine the issue is seen. That immediately
makes it clear wether it's sparc 32 or 64.

For those interested in sparc32, a usefull mailing list to subscribe to
is sparclinux@vger.kernel.org.
With all respect for the good intentions, we don't need another ML.
