Well, let me put it this way: bsdcertification.org is run by a number of
people well known in the *BSD world as making a valuable contribution to
{Free,Open,Net,Dragonfly}BSD and others.

If you look at the list of names in the left hand column on this page:

   http://www.bsdcertification.org/index.php?NAV=Meet%20Us

then with particular reference to FreeBSD you may well recognise:

   Dan Lagille   (Freshports, BSD Diary)

"Langille", actually --- and you forgot "BSDCan".  http://www.langille.org/

   Scott Long    (leading FreeBSD committer: wrote large chunks of SCSI
                  system I believe)

http://people.freebsd.org/~scottl/

   Dru Lavigne   (Wrote 'BSD Hacks' and 'Big Scarey Daemons' OnLamp column)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dru_Lavigne

   Wes Peters    (Another leading FreeBSD committer)

I couldn't find a good home page for Wes, but agree
with Matt's evaluation.  Wes is a member of FreeBSD
core team, last I recall, as well.  Perhaps someone knows
his URI.


   Jeremy C Reed (Leading FreeBSD Advocacy person)

http://pilchuck.reedmedia.net/jeremy/


   Greg Lehey    (Author of 'The Complete BSD'. Former member of core@,
                  well known on this list)

http://www.lemis.com/~grog/
   (from memory, heh.  Seriously, fascinating collection of material ---
       the web would be a much worse place if disaster struck and
       Greg had no backups).

   Marshall Kirk McKusick  (co-author of 'The Design and Implementation
                 of the FreeBSD Operating System')

http://www.mckusick.com/

The other site you mention, "bsdcertification.com" is run by
Jared Barneck, according to whois.  His home page is
at http://www.rhyous.com/.  In 4+ years in FreeBSD, I've
not heard of Jared; that is not to say he should be disqualified
from consideration---it's possible that he runs a fine program.

However, I *have* had dealings with all of the others
above except Mr. Peters, and have found them knowledgeable,
friendly, and deeply concerned about the quality and growth
of FreeBSD.

HTH,

Kevin Kinsey
