Firebird-devel is not just for Firebird developers :)

The description of firebird-support on says:

"Open user support list for released versions of Firebird.
A support list for all currently released versions of Firebird. For
advice about beta versions, please take questions to Firebird-devel."

And for firebird-devel:

"Firebird-devel is an open list for discussing all aspects of porting,
building and enhancing Firebird.
Development lab forum for developers working with the Firebird source
code or _developing drivers_"
