I use it sometimes to test some pkgsrc updates and builds. If crater can 
be used to do pkgsrc builds instead that would be fine. Also okay to do 
development work on it? Now I just saw I no longer have login to crater 
(but my passphrase for my key is correct) -- appears to be for git use

That would be nice. I only had a src tree checked out on pkgbox in my home 
and I had noticed some minor bugs with pkg_search I was going to fix. I 
will open a bug ticket for now.
