Oh, Ubuntu is not the only example. Here is a matrix showing which
operating systems/packaging systems already have Tahoe-LAFS:


Ubuntu has Tahoe-LAFS v1.7.1, nixpkgs has Tahoe-LAFS v1.7.1, FreeBSD
has Tahoe-LAFS v1.7.1, and pkgsrc (e.g. NetBSD) has Tahoe-LAFS v1.8.0.

I would love for this table to get more rows (new operating
systems/packaging systems) and I would love for the column showing
which version of Tahoe-LAFS to change to "v1.8.1" everywhere. :-)
