That's because it's not a simple list of persistent issues.  As with
spurious regression-test failures on Linux, it's an ever changing set of
failures that come and go.  I have a script which parses the results on
build.gluster.org to show which tests are failing that day.


With trivial modification, it can show the current failures on NetBSD
instead of Linux.  Here's the list right now.

[08:45:57] ./tests/basic/afr/arbiter-statfs.t .. 
[08:43:03] ./tests/basic/afr/arbiter-statfs.t .. 
[08:40:06] ./tests/basic/afr/arbiter-statfs.t .. 
[08:08:51] ./tests/basic/afr/arbiter-statfs.t .. 
[08:06:44] ./tests/basic/afr/arbiter-statfs.t .. 
[08:00:54] ./tests/basic/afr/self-heal.t .. 
[07:59:56] ./tests/basic/afr/entry-self-heal.t .. 
[18:05:23] ./tests/basic/quota-anon-fd-nfs.t .. 
[18:06:37] ./tests/basic/quota-nfs.t .. 
[18:49:32] ./tests/basic/quota-anon-fd-nfs.t .. 
[18:51:46] ./tests/basic/quota-nfs.t .. 
[14:25:37] ./tests/basic/quota-anon-fd-nfs.t .. 
[14:26:44] ./tests/basic/quota-nfs.t .. 
[14:45:13] ./tests/basic/tier/record-metadata-heat.t .. 

So some of us *have* done that work, in a repeatable way.  Note that the
list doesn't include tests which *hang* instead of failing cleanly,
which has recently been causing the entire NetBSD queue to get stuck
until someone manually stops those jobs.  What I find disturbing is the
idea that a feature with no consistently-available owner or identifiable
users can be allowed to slow or block every release unless every
developer devotes extra time to its maintenance.  Even if NetBSD itself
is worth it, I think that's an unhealthy precedent to set for the
project as a whole.
