The circle of technology and FreeBSD

Ivan Voras writes he read the release notes of FreeBSD 1.1 and it struck him how many developers have joined the Core Team and then moved on, i.e. there’s a lot of fresh blood and no “tsar” heading up the project. Additionally there are also technical and organisational problems that in some way seem to be returning every now and then.

Two things are interesting to me here:

  • The only name in the old core team I recognize is Jordan Hubbard, and he’s not a FreeBSD developer any more (joined Apple for Mac OS X)
  • Some problems, both technical and organizational, are always repeating themselves.

What do you think? Do you agree with this or do you see things differently?
