    I haven’t been convinced yet that BCHS isn’t a long-running prank, but it’s my kind of joke if it is.

      Quoting the the BCHS website,

      Is BCHS a joke?

      Software development is full of jokes. This is not one of them.

      So I think Kristaps is serious. Plus, the effort he has made is way too much for a joke, I think.

      Hey @kristapsdz, OpenBSD node maintainer here :D

      At one point we had a TS port, but given the wide range of npm modules (and versions there within - sometimes multiple versions of the same module would be used within the same app!) we quickly hit gridlock - where we were unable to update applications and even node itself!

      It’s been a while since I looked, but npm shrinkwrap and the introduction of the package.lock file might be enough to allow for consistent distfile creation.

      If we can build consistent distfiles - ports would be fairly straight forward (basically the same process we use with Go apps and the vendor command - if you are familiar with that).

        You’re like a superman, @qbit, to deal with this behemoth. We’re not worthy! We’re not worthy!
