Root on ZFS, LiveCD and BE

Which is the appropriate maillist to ask questions about Root-on-ZFS
systems? Like the ones below:

1. Boot environment selection from the loader menu does not work on
10.3-RELEASE, or it seems like it. I have submitted a PR
but maybe it's me doing something wrong? Could someone reproduce

2. Sometimes it's necessary to mount a system's root from another
system (LiveCD, mfsBSD or similar). To do that, you have to import a
system's zroot pool on another system. Is it safe? Is it not going to
render the original system unbootable?

There is not much on, it mostly
concentrates on installing FreeBSD on ZFS, not on using it
