22 <b>Q:</b> Can I compile and/or install &lt;some program&gt; on dev.gentoo.org? It would make my life much easier.
23 </p>
24 <p>
25 <b>A:</b> Generally, no. The primary purpose of dev.gentoo.org is to provide email functionality and facilitate file transfers between developers. It is <b>not</b> intended to be a general shell access type server. Where there is a program that a <b>significant</b> number of Gentoo developers may benefit from by having it installed, we will certainly look at adding it. <c>procmail</c> is a perfect example of just such a program. If you feel there is a program that should be added, please contact klieber.

28 Specifically, we do not install, support or provide IRC bouncers.

34 <b>A:</b> Please see the <uri link="/proj/en/infrastructure/#doc_chap3">list</uri> of active developers as well as their areas of responsibility for pointers on who to contact.
