Well if that's your rationale then you can stop pushing because I can state categorically that "FreeBSD" doesn't have any money for that kind of thing and never really did. Rather, various organizations with close ties to the FreeBSD project did, on occasion, pay programmers to write code which coincidently met both the needs of the organization and were in popular demand. Unfortunately, those times and even some of those organizations are now dead. The cappucino makers have been packed up, the Audi TT Roadsters out front reposessed and the fancy lumbar-supporting programmers chairs actioned off by disappointed venture capitalists. The year is now 2001. Please update your mental model. :-) - Jordan To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
