Nobody at SourceGear currently works on the BeOS port, nor do we intend to.
 From the beginning, we decided to actively maintain Linux and Windows
ports, and let the chips fall where they may. If the Be community cares,
so will we. If not, we won't either. We will be sad, but like the Mac
port, we don't intend to prop up an OS nobody else cares about enough to
invest some time in. Now, should someone such as yourself start to make
some improvements, I will help you in every way I can; testing, bug
tracking, builds, and notification to sites when new releases are cut. In
the meantime, send in a patch, and we will check it out and get it

This philosophy makes my life easy, particularly when somebody ask for a
version for something like OS/2. :-)
