that leaves a lot of time, to contribute in various different ways.
I am blown away by the work being done on this OS, and I was wondering
who is working on it full-time, who is part-time, and who just has no
need for sleep like the rest of us. :-)
I'm part-time out of necessity - my work time comes usually late when my
kids are asleep.
This makes me think of a separate issue: Matt - do you have any plans
right now to turn DragonFly into a non-profit as has happened with
NetBSD and FreeBSD?
I ask this because one of the larger employers based in my town (Xerox,
here in Rochester) has sabbaticals for employees, where an employee can
leave, do work for a nonprofit for up to 6 months, and then 'come back'.
I'm pushing for the same thing at my workplace, though I doubt it'd be
on such a grand schedule.
