FYI: interest in a Debian GNU/kFreeBSD live cd (Re: sky2: hw csum failure)
Hi kind Debian GNU/kFreeBSD maintainers,
Just an FYI, to let you know that there is interest by multiple people
in a livecd with Debian GNU/kFreeBSD on it.

Alas, I'm not familiar enough with live cds to know how hard that
would be to make. But thought you might like to know your work on the
port is appreciated from another angle, anyway. ;-)
