Since FreeBSD 3 I have been an active student/user/hacker on my own x86 (Netfinity) based small cluster of servers. Initially, I started with FreeBSD as a path to learn *NIX style operating systems as well as the c programming language, after having spent several years breaking and fixing just about everything I could, and running FreeBSD alongside Solaris x86 & Fedora, I now feel confident enough to take the next step in joining the community. I would like to become a contributor/developer for FreeBSD. I am particularly interested in bringing new features such as ZFS and DTrace to BSD. I am aware of the ongoing work by folks already working on porting DTrace, but am unaware of any ongoing projects to bring ZFS to FreeBSD. Regardless of my preferences, I would be more than happy to get involved where-ever I might be of use whether it be in code, documentation, etc. I am fortunate enough to make my living at home as a website and web application developer for a small design firm with a handful of solid clients; so I can easily make the necessary commitment of time and resources to pursue such a path. My previous contributions have included development work for JRun 3 & 4 and ColdFusion 4-7 for the now Adobe owned Macromedia and once upon a time Allaire. I wish now to take on something more challenging and rewarding. Please inform me as to how I may become a contributor/developer/whatever and where I may most be of use.
