Hi Eric,

Thanks for participating in the release process!  It's very satisfying to actually get some feedback in response to a prerelease ;).

If OpenBSD were a supported platform, a bug like this would cause the release process to stop until it could be addressed; as it is, we will try to merge a bugfix into the release branch if it is available and reviewed in time (before next Monday).  Being a supported platform means that there's a buildbot, and that it shows up on this page: <http://buildbot.twistedmatrix.com/boxes-supported>.  Of course, if OpenBSD were a supported platform, this bug never would have been introduced in the first place, because we would have noticed failing tests immediately!

Does anyone feel like contributing an OpenBSD buildslave, and hopefully also some more expertise for fixing bugs on that platform?  Or, for that matter, any other *BSDs?
