[Cryptography] [cryptography] the Zcash Open Source Miner Challenge (and about Zcash in general)

I just finished my port of Zcash to Mac OS X on Nov 3 (see:
https://github.com/radix42/zcash ) and agree that a mailing list
hosted by the Linux Foundation would be ideal. However I wouldn't
shutter the zcash forum: a user there contributed a patch to libsnark
to work around the lack of ::clock_gettime in Darwin/OS X that made
the rest of the port possible, and is where I connected with an
Ethereum Core developer who contributed a patch set that removed the
final few issues I was grappling with. But a proper mailing list for
core engineering work is indeed desirable.
