Holiday roundup

Matthew Dillon’s committed more journaling work; Jeroen Ruigrok/asmodai has committed Kristian Vlaardingerbroek’s patch to support the 10/100 Ethernet chipset on ICH5-based Intel motherboards. If you are planning to edit man pages, look at mdoc(7), and vim may be a good editor to use, especially if you tackle it like this. Hiten Pandya will be in Bremen, Germany, through January 6th; look him up is you’re a DragonFly user and local.

Donations for the FreeBSD Foundation

The FreeBSD Foundation is looking to add $30,400 by the end of the year – i.e. within about a week. The Foundation has a good amount of cash, but a greater proportion of the Foundation’s money needs to come from private individuals, not corporations, in order to keep its non-profit status (and accompanying tax breaks) in the U.S.

Donating via PayPal or check to the Foundation doesn’t directly help DragonFly, but a high tide raises all boats, as the saying goes.
