What model of keyboard? If it's a type-3, and is in decent shape, I'm
definitely interested in getting hold of it. (The "decent shape" bit
is mostly about the wide keys - left shift and return are the worst -
not binding if pressed off-center. In my experience that is the
commonest failure mode for type-3s.)
If you don't know Sun keyboard models, the simple thing to do is to
look at the pad of keys to the right of the main letter area. If
there's only one block of keys there, in a 3x5 array of keys marked R1
through R15, it's most likely either type-3 or type-2; if it has a
permanently attached cable which terminates in a DA15M, I think that
indicates type-3 (the type-2s I've seen terminate in a phone-style plug
which plugs into a small breakout box which has the DA15 on it).

Same here. If you don't find any other home for the SS5, I likely can
take it, especially if you'll be shipping me something anyway.
If you want to write me off-list (I'm sending this to the list in case
anyone else has a type-3 looking for a home), the headers of your list
message make me think you probably can send directly; if that bounces,
I recommend trying mouse at netbsd.org.
