A few days ago, I posted that packages are not as current as ports are on

they need more machines to compile the code and wanted to know if I wanted
to donate, or words to that affect.

In any case, would that refer to donating an actual computer, or simply
donating computer time? I have three computers, only one running FreeBSD
at this time. I certainly am not going to give away any of my computers,
but I would be willing to share time on one of them if that would help.



What would be useful is multiple (e.g. at least half a dozen) fast machines with good network connectivity. Individual machines aren't much help, I'm afraid. Thanks for the offer though.

Sorry to jump in both uninvited, and late...and, to boot, with just so much theoretical hogwash; I thought it might be of interest to the discussion at hand.

I've been getting more interested in clustering.
With all the "hoopla" (as it were) about BSD clusters,
would one fast cluster do this task?  (i.e., could
you build packages over MPI?)

Not that I have 'em, but my server farm is growing
faster than my hosting business... and I'm hoping
to get situated with a faster connection soon.

Heh, if it can work that way, maybe we should beg
from Matt or Brooks? :-D
