14 We (Patrick and I) tried to get someone interested in an OpenBSD
15 (re)port of Gentoo, but students lots interest. Maksbotan got involved
16 but we soon hit deep snags. There were not something we couldn't
17 handle, but they were time consuming. For the hell of it, I started
18 porting Gentoo to minix a few days ago when 3.2.0 came out. Same story,
19 and as soon as the issues got deep, I asked myself, do I have time for
20 this?!
22 Then I asked, who would use this? I'm not sure about the OpenBSD port
23 but with Minix there is some possibility because Minix is in need of
24 userland. *Shrug*
