I'm at least still actively maintaining the freebsd-manpages package
and I still do run my (non-meltdown-spectre affected :-) ASUS EeeBox
with Debian GNU/kFreeBSD as mentioned in the other thread.

As mentioned in the other thread, I'm willing to do sysadmin as I did
in the past on the non-DSA porterboxes asdfasdf and io. (Since about a
year or so I have no more physical access to asdfasdf due to a job
change — and asdfasdf seems to be down for quite a while now.)

I'm also willing to do episodic debugging work, but as mentioned
before, I'm definitely no (c-) toolchain guy, so don't expected me to
fix compilers or other low-level stuff like kernels or init systems.

(Any debhelper "toolchain" related help request is though welcome. :-)

I definitively was not reading the list for quite a while as everthing
went smoothly enough for my personal needs until the buildds stopped
working. So that's how you got my attention (and not by just writing a
mail to this list like jcristau did).

I might move the debian-bsd mailing lists from being delivered into a
separate incoming folder (as I do with most debian mailing lists) over
to being delivered directly into my inbox. But I won't promise to keep
such a setting if the mail volume raises again on this list. (Which is
the main reason to filter out mailing lists into separate folders.)
