6.1 Feedback

is welcomed. Mail me at My PGP public key (ID 5F263625) is available from my web pages, if you feel the need to be secretive about things.

If you have a question that you feel this document should have answered and doesn't, mail me. If you have a question which probably shouldn't be answered here but you think I might know the answer anyway, you might want to try posting to an appropriate comp.os.linux.* newsgroup first; I usually answer mail eventually, but I have been known to lose it on occasion.
