netbsd-i386 apt archive gone?
I've been working on my Live (K)FreeBSD project and was attempting to package
the makefs program (http://www.daemonology.net/makefs/) for Debian. makefs
would allow userspace creation of rootfs/ramdisks from user space (so
you could use your site's existing Debian/Linux server to assemble the
live ISO/NFSroot from pure binaries).
One thing that would help is the purported-to-exist package of NetBSD's make
("netbsd-make" - http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=194260),
which is a Build-Depend. It seems the apt archive holding that, and possibly
more of the old netbsd-i386 port, is gone:
There is another apt archive listed on http://www.debian.org/ports/netbsd/
but the netbsd-make source is not in it and the dates look a little crufty
(2002) - although I am too new to know the exact timeline of the port's
development ( & discontinuation? ).
Repackaging it probably isn't a big deal, but it's a shame the archive
is gone - it's still useful, in my case. Are there any other mirrors of this
port? Should they find their way to debian-ports.org?
