Hi Brad,
Where is the broken report coming from given that there is no builder?
If somebody steps up to maintain the port, would the EC2 instance be
provided by golang.org?

It might be a moot point because I am not sure DragonFly runs in an EC2
instance.  I know Colin Percival did a major effort to get FreeBSD to
run in it, and I haven't heard any DragonFly person doing something
similar.  Could it equally be hosted on one of the dragonflybsd.org
blade servers?
