I no longer have the spare equipment to test/contribute, but as a 
perspective possible future user, I've been tracking sheepdog for over a 
year. I'm very pleased to see you guys doing well. It's been an 
impressive and constant stream of patches and updates.

Best of luck to you guys. I'll slip back into the shadows now. :)
