Default Adding a DragonFly BSD section?

What about adding an area for DragonFly? Are there just not enough users to warrant it?

I think that DragonFly is legit BSD citizen and does deserve its own subsection.

While I agree that DragonFly BSD is both a legitimate & viable member of the *BSD family, there are less than 100 references to DragonFly in the archives (through the entire history of this site...), & of those threads, many are simply outstanding questions with no knowledgeable answers.

When this site was started, the Other BSD and UNIX/UNIX-like section was created for new, small, & evolving *BSD projects. The idea was that this would be the repository intended to encapsulate threads targeting other projects until a userbase formed -- of users asking questions & others answering.

My personal concern is that it still premature to create a standalone section for DragonFly BSD here. My fear is that it will lie dormant for a long time, making some believe that use is declining when in reality, the DragonFly BSD community is quite active in its own realm -- which includes its own mailing lists .

The sub-fora are a legacy from this site's direct ancestor, from which I copied them almost ad-verbatim. That site had a lot more traffic; perhaps the 4 BSD sub-fora for the various BSD's could be joined? So you have one forum for each BSD...

A surprising amount of DragonFly BSD questions can easily be answered by just reading the English Wikipedia. Also I'd assume that more of its users would appear here if it had its own subforum, given that there's no official one AFAICS.
