Thiago, I really liked the blog articles you wrote: http://thiagoperrotta.wordpress.com/2014/07/20/here-be-dragons-freebsd-overview-part-i/ http://thiagoperrotta.wordpress.com/2014/07/21/here-be-packages-freebsd-overview-part-ii/ and you have very good suggestions. You seem like a very positive person, and are willing to make good suggestions and contributions. We (FreeBSD community) should take your suggestions, because you are a newcomer, so you are seeing things with fresh eyes. I am a bit busy these days, but would you have time to maybe help me write some HOWTO's for FreeBSD, especially things that help people migrate from Linux to FreeBSD? Thanks. -- Craig _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
