If you are interested in the status of these ports, there are mailing lists available in the porting project. If you don't find what you're looking for above, check the archives for the general porting list. You can join any of these lists to find out what is going on.

If you are interested in ports to other platforms, be they open source (e.g., FreeBSD) or commercial (e.g., OSE or PowerTV), join and post to the main porting discussion mailing list. There may be others with similar interests, and we can give you your own mailing list or other resources as appropriate to assist in the porting effort. We also recommend you review the Helix Client Porting Guide which should be of great help in estimating the effort needed to accomplish a port as well as providing a template for conducting a port.

If you are interested in porting the Helix Server to other platforms, please use the Helix Server project for your discussions. While some of the information presented the Helix Client porting docs listed below will be relevant, there are significant differences which are best covered in the main helix-server project at this time.
