FYI: TeXlive 2009 binaries for FreeBSD 6,7,8 i386/AMD64
Dear TeXLive team,
I created 6 sets of FreeBSD binaries of TeXLive2009, for FreeBSD 6, 7
and 8, each for i386 and amd64:
As an active FreeBSD contributor/porter -- and a user of TeXLive on
FreeBSD myself -- I offer to maintain all these sets and do test builds
from now on. This maintenance might include producing new sets of
binaries if significant changes occur in software provided by ports
system that TL binaries are linked to.
Besides, I will be glad to cover more FreeBSD versions for these two
archs if a need arises, although this in unlikely at the moment.
I am aware that you received offers for FreeBSD maintainership earlier,
but I hope that my offer will suit you better because of "all-in-one"
use UNIX or die :-)
