DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2009-11
RE: linuxulator update
Any date is fine. This has been waiting for years, it's not about two weeks
or a month anymore.
Thanks for the interest in doing this!
In any case, if someone else also wants to work on it, say so here so the
effort is easier to coordinate. Don't be put off by the fact that someone
already has announced his interest. It's all about collaboration here, and
several people might get a usable result faster/easier.

I could do this, but would have to wait until after December 8, as I'm still
in school. Is that okay? I have Linux 2.6.20 and DF 2.5.1.
