I don't mind doing any double work at all. OpenBSD is far enough off the
beaten path that I am running any test within the modules that can be
run. Right now, 6.7 will ship with Perl 5.30.2, with some customizations
for OpenBSD. PostgreSQL 12.x.
I am hoping to get LedgerSMB up and running inside of 6.8 -current.
That can be run by anyone who wants to. Many do run -current, so that's

I need to change my git email address and re-add LedgerSMB to that one.
The projects I was following were a bit overwhelming to this email.

Let me know what tests I should run. I will make sure I have any needed
modules ready for those tests.
