Indeed I do!  ;-)

I've got find time to upgrade my main server at home from 1.3.2 to 1.4.x
and we've also got clients running everything from 1.3.2 and newer.  I
still build binary packages for 1.3.3/i386 for one client who's still
due to upgrade before 1.5 would be stable enough for my tastes so
they'll likely go to 1.4.3.  I'm kind of dreading having to re-build so
many packages on my sparc-2, though the usage profile of that machine
has changed enough that not as many end-user applications are needed on
it any more....

My local copy of pkgsrc is diverging quite a bit from what's in the
NetBSD CVS repository these days though, and not just because it's out
of date.  I'm due to try re-sync'ing again fairly soon and I'm sure some
changes are suitable for submission to NetBSD but there seems to be
unspoken resistance to at least some of the ideas I've implemented for
my own use, which of course makes it a lot harder for me to separate
at least some kinds of fixes.
