Well, his list is "doesn't fetch", but it's broken.  That's on my list
of things to fix, and adding the information to portsmon is also.

Since a couple of weeks before BSDCan I had been ignoring the sparc64
builds while I got ready, but I started a new, complete, 7 build a few
days ago, and it is nearly complete.

I have some replacement disks that I need to ship to ISC to bring
some of the Netras back online.  The lerwick machines I have not
been able to configure correctly.  We will be losing some of the
York machines in the near future.

When I get back from vacation I intend to do some cluster maintenance.

I think it would be in great demand.
