YaY, as long as there is no systemD in the changelog I will gladly use it! Just one thing: 8.1_STABLE NetBSD 8.1_STABLE (RPI2) Please stop creating these _STABLE releases or subreleases there should be only one 8.1 and that should be the stable if you want some testing branch call it something else.
