Nobody has ever asked the GNOME community to do that. Actually, nobody
even asked the Debian GNOME team to do that for non-Linux ports. But we
could always integrate the necessary patches to support BSD (and even
Hurd!) when people wrote them.

For systemd this is another story, since Lennart always made it very
clear that a port to another OS would have to live in another
repository. Telling people to do the porting job is one thing, telling
them to maintain a complete fork is another one.
