Really ?
And which TNF supplied box provides me with the ability to do that,
Jason ?  Or is there a Wasabi one to provide such resources to ppl ?

I'm sorry to say that I just don't have the spare boxes, GHz, MB
or GB that the average Wasabi staffer has to do these things, so
no, I do not have the ability to cross-compile nearly every NetBSD
platform like others do.  I've got enough space set aside to build
-current NetBSD kernels on the platform with the quickest CPU I have
which is x86 and that's it.  If you or someone else is willing to
throw some hardware my way that I can turn on when required to do
that work, I won't say no :)

Acutally, there were no comments to the patches I updated on June 14.

None at all.

So don't blame me if you didn't review them or didn't read your
email and feel like you were left out of the loop - you weren't.

I sent out an email, but I can't make you read it or review the

Where people provided feedback/comments, I addressed them.

The last comments I received were from Chuck Silvers about
'struct buf' and his comments I took on board and fixed things

The only others to provide useful comments, that I've got a record
of in my inbox, were lha@ and nathanw@ and that was months ago.
