Back to hacking at NetBSD. I've been cleaning up installation notes for the 1.5 release, and enhancing the clarity of various section 5 man pages. Other notables:

ftp(1): added mreget, -N netrc & $NETRC support

ftpd(8): lots of features, including new ftpd.conf directives `maxfilesize' and `sanenames', various new command line options, etc. I really should finish my portable version of this (aka `lukemftpd')...


Almost finished the OSDA project that ajv alluded to a while ago. He'll be presenting it (in my absence; I have a wedding to attend) at the AOSS2 in Adelaide on November 25. We'll announce it and provide more details once it's been presented there.


Still trying to organise a trip to LISA in New Orleans in early December, followed up by a visit to clients and fellow NetBSD hackers in the Bay Area in the following week. Looks like IETF in San Diego is out of the question now (due to return flight availability)
