Yah, well the people doing it are also busy and working at things which are supposed to make them a living. Most make their FreeBSD contribution work on the side - in addition to their paying jobs although some are in the fortunate position of working for someone who recognizes it as also contributing to their productivity on the job. There are many ways to contribute. Not all are writing code. Some are in documentation and in other services. And, although it is a volunteer project, it does require money to support such things as servers and test machines and network access. So, if you cannot contribute time and effort and your business is so valuable, then consider contributing money - to support someone to work in the project, at least part time. If you only want to get something for nothing, then you live in the wrong world. ////jerry _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
