Hi all, tn5250 seems to be essentially unmaintained based on the
SourceForge site. There's reports of issues on 64-bit and macOS platforms
which I also ran in to and fixed (wish I'd seen the patches, which would
have saved me a bunch of time). I see there was some talk about migrating
to GitHub or BitBucket in 2017, but nothing ever came of it:

I have forked another cvs -> git repo I found on GitHub along with a bunch
of fixes and IPv6 support here:

I was wondering if the tn5250 SourceForge owners (who I assume are still
on this list) would be willing to transfer to the project to me. I can do
a proper cvs -> git migration (I'd need contributors to send me their cvs
id and preferred git name & emails). I would also archive the SourceForge
site and point it at the new GitHub repo.
