Sorry guys! I don't have the bandwidth. I can try to tackle some of those tonight. Also feel free to usurp me as you see fit.

Has it really been a year? Wow time flies. I still have some of those (year old) tickets queued up in my todo.list. Hah.

OK. Good to know, thank you! Think about which ports you might want to drop entirely.

I'd like to keep them all, except for istumbler and Chmox. I petition to have istumbler abandoned as the maintainer stopped open sourcing his code base a long time ago. Chmox is looking a bit dated. I would recommend it go unmaintained.

I'd especially like to keep the arm-* variants and other cross compiling helpers. I use those often in Debian, but I admittedly have a hard time keeping them working and up to date with ports. I'll make it a point to obtain better understanding of how I can keep these ported, maintained, and useful for people using them on macOS.

I love the new look and switch to github oauth! I'll make it a point to get back on our irc, and be more active in the mailing lists. I'm really amazed by this community and I'd like to support in anyway that I can.
