Subject: Kermit and NetBSD

Hi Eric.  We talked about packaging C-Kermit for NetBSD back in March.

With C-Kermit 7.0 nearing release:

we are thinking that this might be a good time to make some arrangement 
with the various "free Unix" distributors to have them include C-Kermit in
their packages -- Slackware, Debian, Red Hat, SuSE, Caldera, Corel, etc,
as well as FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, ...

The idea is not to change the C-Kermit license, but rather to license it to
the companies that produce these distributions, for use (but not
redistribution) by their customers.  Thus some kind of responsible corporate
person would need to sign some kind of license.

Do you have any idea who I should talk with about this for NetBSD -- I note
that it has various CDROM distributors: Cheapbytes, Quality Bytes, etc...
Who puts the distribution CDROMs together?
