So to recap, the guy that maintain DHCPCD will basically die in mere months or days because of cancer, and one of the things he did is to notify others that there’s going to be a need for a new maintainer. Holy shit.

I read the posts he linked to, damn. From noticing a tiny bump in February 2020 to having a ~1 year life expectancy in March 2021, that’s awful.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
