Hey Marcin, So I just read the Contribution License Agreement and I didn't see anything untoward.
https://cla2.dotnetfoundation.org/cladoc/net-foundation-contribution-license-agreement.pdf Just remember all these projects are MIT, Apache 2 or CC license. I think bringing this code into FreeBSD is a bonkers good idea. (Kaboom! lolz). Especially if you think about how much proprietary code is out there on Windows that people will want to protect. A FreeNAS style management console would make FreeBSD a particularly attractive offer over GPL licensed OSes for companies to create appliance style systems (physical or virtual, a-la FreeNAS). Jails become yet another great way to distribute proprietary code. Sony PS 3&4, NetApp and now Nintendo Switch are all great examples of what you can do with FreeBSD in a proprietary system. Dot Net Core also opens up Arm based systems on FreeBSD in some ways because it's specifically designed do be modular. I don't think Mono has built on Arm for a long time and the performance of Mono has been a problem of note.
