We really don't need to turn this into a series of personal attacks.
Bernd definitely could have phrased it better but he has a point, your
job does not provide a salary, you do it on a voluntary basis just like
all the other people who work on NetBSD (including Bernd). I appreciate
the work you have done on the port, most people (myself included) could
not manage it due to lack of experience/time.
I am grateful for the work you put in, but if you are having problems
keeping up you should find someone to help. I'm sure someone with the
appropriate skills can be found to help with the port. If you farm out
some of the drudge work you will have more time for yourself and minor
changes can be dealt with more quickly.
Merry Xmas <-no sarcasm intended :)
