Now that there is a working port of tor browser to OpenBSD, and BSD buildbots for tor, it seems like a good time to let tor-dev at lists.torproject.org know.
Would you like to forward your email below to them?
(I am happy to if you're not subscribed.)
Is there a good summary of the BSD buildbot setup somewhere in an email?
