Hello all,

Sorry to interrupt you, but my reason for sending my comment to the
message originally sent to the KAME mailing list to current-users was not to
bring up a big discussion about binary snapshots and cross-compiling,
but rather to request information and ideas for how external developers
(e.g. the KAME project) can track NetBSD-current in the least painful
way, while keeping focussed on developing their own software.
