For sure there is interest. Frequently DragonFly syncs against FreeBSD
(another other BSDs) as the similar components slowly become dated.
Sephe is just saying there's no one dedicated person that does this.
Normally it's either an itch to scratch or somebody notices that the
component is just really old and its time for an update. I would think
that would occur often enough with wi-fi components.
I, for one, appreciate the information that FreeBSD's work is
progressing and we should considering doing a sync up.
