I would firmly have to agree.
I've been trying to figure out where I can do the most good to
help NetBSD. I've made some changes to the zs driver and a few
kernel mods that speed things up. I will send in a pr once they
are fully tested.
But, I do have access to a full T1 pipe to the internet. And
I would be more than willing to dedicate a SS2 to being ftp.netbsd.org
if people were interested. I'm not talking about using my home machine
but rather a dedicated machine.
Not being able to get timely access to ftp.netbsd.org or sup.netbsd.org
has been very discouraging..
