Heh, it's actually not.  That list is for development discussion but we use the tracker heavily enough that it can certainly get overwhelmed with tracker messages if you aren't filtering those to a separate mail box. :)

We're going to begin doing continuous integration (automated building and testing after every commit) of the Bro source code soon and the plan currently is to also do these build/test cycles on a range of operating systems.  I think that OpenBSD is going to be one of the ones we test so hopefully our OpenBSD support will be regularly tested (which it currently isn't) so we can prevent regressions from popping up.
