The latest ones I've seen are Max's and the ones from nipsi.de. They're
both considered too intrusive according to Max, but he expects to produce
a new one after 5.2-RELEASE when the network stuff has settled down. He
wasn't sure whether anyone wanted to import pf into FreeBSD before 5.2-R.
I spoke to Jeroen a few days ago and he seemed to have a bit of interest
in pf. He mentioned he'd look at it, but I suspect he has quite a bit on
his plate as it is.
