This is the right group.  If you don't get a response to your
questions here are some things to consider:

. Check to see whether your posting made it to the list, which you can
  see by checking out the comp.soft-sys.ace newsgroup to see if your
  posting is visible.

. If it's not visible, please make sure you're subscribed to the
  mailing list(s) you sent the report to since we have a "members
  only" posting requirement to minimize spam.

. If it is visible and you haven't received a reply this probably
  means that either no one knows the answer or no one has time to
  answer it.  As always, if you need more predictable help please
  contact one of commercial support companies for ACE+TAO, which are
  described at http://www.dre.vanderbilt.edu/support.html.

If it's a general question about how to use ACE, TAO, or CIAO feature
we'll try to respond as time permits, though we will also rely on the
experience of the open-source user community to field these types of
questions, as well.  You should first check out the online FAQ at
http://www.theaceorb.com/faq/ to see if your question has already been
