I'm writing a review of FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE and part of the review entails outlining the significant differences between FreeBSD and GNU/Linux (in a general sense).
These are the points that I plan on writing about:
Development philosophy Development process Delivery and installation of ported programs and packages Cohesiveness of the kernel and the userland The licensing
Most of these I can handle on my own, but I'd like to add some official comments from FreeBSD committers and contributors regarding development philosophy and process. Also if you feel that I've left out something important from the above list, please turn me on to it. Thanks for taking the time to respond to my request.
It's quite possible that you'll get answers from one of these types of people via your first post; however, it might be more likely to happen if you'd post the message to the advocacy@ list, possibly the chat@ list, or perhaps even the hackers@ list.
However, I'd check the charter for hackers@ before sending it there. (I don't read that one) I'm sure you can find mailing list charters on the freebsd.org web site (IIRC, there's one in the handbook, among other places.)
Now, all that said, realize that I'm just a "fan" or "general population user" of FreeBSD, and have no official relationship with the project other than occasional 'evangelism'.
