Dear Solomon,

I'm perhaps just a random follower and Rockbox user - I made an Ubuntu
PPA some time back, that's all.

I just wanted to say that your work is SUPER acknowledged and this kind
of "reproductive work" shouldn't also be invisible work, so really
appreciate that you are sharing the steps involved and the beautiful
details of the migration work! You are not the only one with such tasks
at hand, so it's always nice to hear about how others solve it.

If you can figure out a convenient way to share any future rack server
bills, I'll be happy to chip in some annual dollars. Perhaps Patreon?
