Congrats on your Covid recovery! I can relate, as I got it bad back in late
December. It's no picnic; that's for sure.

While I'm not attempting to create your priority list. As the maintainer of
some 160 FreeBSD ports, and a happy OI user. I'd like to pitch in, and offer
time, and CPU cycles to help out. I'm afraid I wouldn't know where to start.
Or rather; I'm well familiar with setting up build farms (jails) and
building/fixing rebuilding everything. I'm really just looking for a list
of things to start with.

Feel free to contact me off list if you like.

All the best!
