   Hey there.  I wanted to inquire about comms/conserver and comms/ 
conserver8.  conserver 7.x has been *many* years at this point since  
it's been current, and while I know some people are still using it, I  
think the pkgsrc view that "conserver" is conserver 7.x, and  
"conserver8" is the newer "other" conserver may be too outdated.   
Myself, I've been using conserver for 4-5 years, and never touched  
conserver 7.x.  What is the normal course for this sort of change in  

   Also, I'd like to request if 8.1.16 could be pulled into pkgsrc.   
8.1.14 is what is currently conserver8, and while there's nothing  
huge fixed, there is an annoying descriptor leak that was fixed in  
8.1.16.  For people like me who have the conserver running for a long  
time, and the console devices flapping a fair bit, it does eventually  
bite us.

   Thanks.  Let me know if there's anything I can do to help, and I'd  
be happy to.
