I am not on any software team in the RC5 effort. I am with the
Linux folks but MVS system software development is a specialty of mine.

I am interested in porting it to MVS... It might fun. I can
write the code but I dont have a machine to compile and test on.
(Yes, I know I can get the Tachyon assembler for compiling but
a mainframe is needed for the standard MVS and TCP/IP macro libs.)

I think I can scrounge up a little time.  Where can I find the 
current PC source to port. MVS TCP/IP should be no problem
except in finding a system that is internet connected...

If you've got the mainframe I can code it or at least as much
as my time permits.
