} That makes two .ca posters missing the rhetoric in my question; is
} that enemy action? :-)

     I didn't know that Canada and the US were at war.

     My question is a serious question.  I am trying to understand
what it is that you are saying.  After that, I may or may not choose
to formulate a response.  I do know that it would be foolish to
formulate a response without fully understanding what it is that
you are trying to say.

} More seriously:

     This is happening.  I'm sure an official announcement will be
made when there are concrete plans in place.  Do note that I don't
officially speak for pkgsrc-wip.

     This is a different debate and one that I'm staying out of
for now.

     Undecided.  The stock chart doesn't look that great.  On the
other hand, it does have an attractive P/E ratio and does pay
dividends.  Would need to look at it a little closer.  (Yes, I do
see the smiley, but I answered anyways.)
