The current archive starts in January 2000.. If there's

Well, I'm probably not up to a page, but I can provide
this status update from here:
I'm working on getting a cross compiler going out of the
pkgsrc/cross tree. I'd say its between 50% and 80% done. Right
now, I'm building it on an i386 machine, but I expect to move
these build operations to an Alpha in the not too distant
I noticed that Mickey on the OpenBSD project updated the
OpenBSD tree a bit. I _still_ wasn't able to get a cross
compiler to build on my OpenBSD/sparc system, so I haven't gone
too much farther down that path.. I did make one (perverse)
attempt to build the OpenBSD tree using my existing mkLinux/hppa
box and its compiler, but that rapidly came up against the expectation
