I generally concur with all of the above.
I would like to add a suggestion: outline precisely what somebody would
need to do if they really wanted to get S9 builds running.
There are still so many people whining when their S8 boxes stops
running, I can't help thinking there must be an awful lot of
mission-critical and yet fully unsupported S9 out there (unless it was
really little used, because I've known sysadmins avoiding odd-numbered
And that, in my opinion, could be either in participating directly, of
course, or in the form of paying a fee or contacting an organization, an
individual who would do the job of keeping those S9 packages running for
a fee, and support OpenCSW in another way.
Is that reasonable? Doable?
