The next two meetings focus on architectures beyond the regular
i386/amd64 world. This month's meeting is about FreeBSD porting to the
Beagle Bone running on ARM, and April's meeting will feature a talk on
porting OpenBSD to MIPS.
Note that BSDCan (.org) is coming up in May. A number of people from
NYC*BUG will be there, and we strongly encourage you to attend.
Yes, we're still cross-posting to talk@, but get on announce at for
these announces in the future.
Note that we launched a Tor-BSD list recently. For anyone developing or
using Tor on a BSD, join up and let's get the discussion moving.
