Cray UNICOS (or UNICOS/mk, too) volunteers sought...
Message ID:

I have so far been the "UNICOS man" looking after the UNICOS port of
Perl, I have access to a C90 running UNICOS 9.0.1ai.  Perl 5.005_62
tested out fine.  Now, however, the site is ending their C90 contract
and in a week their electricity bill will be much lower :-)

Therefore and thusly: if somebody has access to Crays please step
forward and be prepared to test new developer (and maintenance)
releases as they come out.  Both UNICOS and UNICOS/mk would be fine.

I know that UNICOS should work okay.  For UNICOS/mk (the microkernel
variant of UNICOS run on the Alpha-powered T3X series) I see that we
have some unresolved problem reports, so be prepared to do some
debugging if you plan to play there.

Plan B: if somebody has a Cray to spare and money to cover the
rewiring and electricity bills, please donate it immediatement to Kurt's
basement for the Perl Labs :-)
