Call for testers: ACPI / power management branch
Another project that's currently under development is
Jared McNeill's work on reworking NetBSD's power management
Jared's proposal on the topic.
The code is getting into shape, and Jared sent out
a request for testing.
Latest status updates can be seen on
Jared's ACPI Status page.
People interested to help out with the project can
follow the instructions
and report back to Jared.
For further support, Jared would appreciate some hardware for
extending his work. Right now, an amd64-based laptop (e.g. IBM/Lenovo
T60 or X60) would be needed for non-i386/64bit development. If you
have some spare amd64 hardware or spare cash to support The NetBSD Foundation to fund the corresponding hardware, talk to Jared, too!
