|| ||The projected demise of GNU-Darwin|

Sorry if you get more than one copy of this message. I thought that it
was important to notify every stakeholder.
I have recently gotten a handle on the life expectancy of our
Distribution in years. Given the current rate of decay and
deterioration of our equipment, including file system damage and
obsolescence, we can expect that GNU-Darwin will be dead as a the
proverbial door-nail within 9 years. In order to avert the demise of
the Distro, it would take a major rejuvination of talent, resources, and
interest, which is not forthcoming it appears.
We will maintain the Distro through the period of accellerated decline
as long as we possibly can, and strive to maintain operability for our
service users. It has been a fine time, and it is nice to know that we
have several good years left to go.
It seems to me that some may like to help us to delay this demise. If
you have anything that you would like to contribute, it may help. Here
is a web page full of suggestions. Warning, it is a little dated ;-}.
