My suggestion would be to send to Sun-related fora rather than spam-related
ones. In particular, I would suggest a message to the (in)famous Sun
Managers list: sun-managers@localhost. This list has
literally thousands of sun managers on it and is very busy and highly
regarded.

NB: Be sure to start the "Subject:" field with "SUMMARY: " or you will be
filtered out by most subscribers.

Perhaps we can also develop an FAQ-style question / answer to go in Casper
Dik's widely-referenced FAQ.
(ftp://ftp.wins.uva.nl/pub/solaris/solaris2.html)

I gues this brings up the wider issue we discussed in January; that of
contacting the vendors rather than the users...

Now... any volunteers ;-)
