Maybe that is just paranoia speaking.
none of your freedoms will be in any way infringed upon with what is
proposed ... you will always have the freedom to disable the reporting and
not particpate *shrug*
I think a much more productive goal is to get all the users that have
unsupported hardware to write into the vendor that created it and ask
them why they don't support a spawn of the OS that allowed what we call
the internet to exist. Put this message on FreeBSD.org, get people in
this list to do it, get on a soap box and scream it. I think giving them
numbers of systems will just be ignored. But getting 1000 emails a day
in multiple languages from around the world will get them thinking maybe
its worth at least releasing the specs just to shut these people up.
The above is an "active campaign", which you will generally find doesn't
yield anything, unfortunately, since its more work then 99.9% of the
people will feel compelled to do ...
As ScottL said in one of his emails, in a form ... We don't want to piss
Adaptec off, which a "letter writing campaign" would ... what we want to
do is give Adaptec something to think about in terms of 'market missed'
