[23:37] <SolarfluX> _jkh: from 'TheVince': I would like to know how many people work full-time on the FreeBSD project.
Also, I read recently that you were considering improving the startup scripts
by following a paper from the NetBSD project. What other things have NetBSD
and OpenBSD done that influenced you to implement them as well?
[23:38] <_jkh> it's hard to give a real number for "full time"
[23:38] <_jkh> but I would estimate perhaps 20 on average
[23:38] <_jkh> and at least a couple of hundred unique contributions
[23:39] <_jkh> and we take all kinds of stuff from NetBSD and
[23:39] <_jkh> that's what open source is about.
[23:39] <_jkh> I think the NetBSD startup stuff, for example,
is pretty cool
[23:39] <_jkh> we're just trying to find enough bodies to finish
[23:39] <_jkh> (the merge)
[23:39] <_jkh> I'm sure the NetBSD folks would like over 6000
ports in their ports collection too
[23:39] <_jkh> but they have the same problem.
[23:40] <_jkh> so we all share as much code as we have time to
[23:40] <_jkh> next q.
