G'day all,

I've bee working on tnt and tfkiss for quite some time now in view of
getting Amateur Radio Software into the NetBSD packages tree. The original
submission dates back to February (by memory) which was sitting there
unattended for quite some time.

These programs are subject to continued development and new revisions
have been released since. Consequently, the package sources were
revised and a new PR was raised superceeding all previous submissions.
This was repeated several time and tnt never made it into the tree.

Is there a way of fasttracking tnt and tfkiss into the packages
tree? I am currently working on several other packages (dpbox, dpboxt,
wampes, sattrack etc. pp.) and like include them into the packages
tree in near future.

The majority of programs are written for Linux which I've ported to
NetBSD-i386. Perhaps this will motivate some HAM's in returning to NetBSD.

I am willing to help in maintaing the ham category of the packages tree if
workload is the pre-dominant factor of current constraints. 

cheerio Berndt
