What do you want to do?  I'm not really familiar with this port yet,
but there is certainly need for others than just programmers--or C

Well, I'm not the port-master.  As far as I know, sakamoto is still the
port-master.  I don't know what I will be doing, exactly, until I get it
up and running and play with it some.

Going by what I've done with the mac68k port over the years, I will post
to the mailing list about the changes that I am making or have made.

In general, if you have any ideas on what you'd like to do or to see,
post.  Just do it and post.  Or, if you prefer, do it and submit a PR.
There are currently no PRs open against port-bebox.

Mainly, I'm interested in making sure that NetBSD/bebox is part of
future releases and that it keeps up to date with the rest of the
system.  I'd like to play with multi-processing, too, once I learn
more about the system.
