Oh, dammit. Given a line like that...
*I'd* like to thank Jason for all the work he's done for the NetBSD
project. I think Jason stands out head-and-shoulders above the rest
of us involved in the NetBSD Project for his fairness, reasonableness,
and -- most most relevant to this thread thread -- a willingness to
take on ``management''-related issues.
That's never an easy task with either a volunteer project, or with a
collection of people who, on occasion, have strongly-held conflicting
opinions. The NetBSD project has both, and Jason has done a really
great job at taking on a role that I, for one, wouldnt' touch with a
barge-pole. And that's _on top of_ contributing astoundingly good
design work and code.
