Hi Sascha,

I saw your work. Last time I played with IPMI on DF was around times of
3.8. so it doesn't involve your IPMI porting effort.  I installed
ipmitool using dports and tried pooling sensoring information from the
local host but it looked like driver was not loaded at all. The original
plan was also to pool IMPI using collectd plugin. At that time I didn't
know that you guys imported already sensorsd from OpenBSD (I learned
about that from my fellow OpenBSD users) so I didn't play with it.
sensorsd in retrospect would have been more interesting to me personally.

I work for a data mining lab and we wanted to use DF as data storage OS.
If you are interested in my experience I would be happy to write a small
summary from my system admin point of view.

Thank you so much for all you do for DF and BSDs in general.
