Weekly FreeBSD cvs-src Summaries

Want to know more about FreeBSD development? Don't want to subscribe to the freebsd-current mailing list, or search the archives? If the answer to either question is yes, visit Mark's weekly FreeBSD cvs-src summaries. Mark Johnston was inspired by this thread to post his first summary in late January. Mark reads emails on commits to cvs-src and summarizes what he believes is important.

Some of what he writes brings obscure topics to the FreeBSD public's attention. His 23 January report mentions a series of additions to the current tree called "Project Evil." The first commit occurred in December. Project Evil, also known as the NDISulator, helps FreeBSD use Windows device drivers. Bill Paul's December and January posts to freebsd-current give more details.
