I build FreeBSD Update patches for all the branches supported by the
FreeBSD Security Team.

To answer a couple of other questions:

FreeBSD Update is something which I _personally_ support; it isn't
supported by the _project_, because at the moment there isn't anyone
else who could take over running it if I get hit by a bus.

Re the long list of requests people have made (starting with "amd64
support" and "make this officially supported by the project"), I'll
get to those as soon as I have time.  Sadly, I have a pesky thing
called "a full time job" and my FreeBSD time has been occupied with
portsnap lately.
