Hi y'all, I've been digging into the port net/tn3270 since I volunteered to maintain it ;) .
I have some questions, now, after I did some searches on Google.com to try locating the 'official' Berkeley stuff (our src trees have it branded on just about everything y'know ;) . I'm wondering what historical moves were done to the src that builds FreeBSD's telnet command and telnetd daemon, because now they do not match other BSDs (AFAICS). This is the crux of my perplextion. It seems NetBSD and OpenBSD continue to include telnet+telnetd+tn3270 together under one subdir as part of /src/usr.bin -- but FreeBSD moved only the telnet[d] pieces to /src/contrib/telnet and eliminated the tn3270 pieces completely. (I haven't dug too deep yet in the libtelnet tree, which is one piece that FreeBSD does retain as other BSDs have it. But for right now let's stick to the command & daemon parts.) I'm seriously debating in my head whether FreeBSD should add back the tn3270 pieces to /src/contrib/telnet so that we can match the other BSDs albeit in the 'contrib' subtree. I know NetBSD has sheared away from FreeBSD, but they have kept their telnet subtree updated and along the lines of original BSD. Same with OpenBSD, even tho the files on their mirrors look even 'newer' than NetBSD's. There was a humongous commit some months ago, I believe to NetBSD's srcs, to get rid of the 'Berkeley' branding and several lines of Berkeley's licensing (legal) wording. That huge commit touched most of src _everywhere_. That commit's Log entry was specifically mentioning Berkeley's disbanding of the agreements back in 1999. Not even the 'lint' #ifdef is in there anymore for NetBSD (but OpenBSD has retained them). I'll stop right here before asking anything else, wanting to see if anyone here at FreeBSD can explain what has happened and why 'we' are so different than 'them'. ;) Thank you very much. -- Paul Seniura System Specialist State of Okla.
