From what I read arond (including firstname.lastname@example.org), it's not clear at all
this is related to de Raadt's comments. It may just be coincidence.
It seems this decision is affecting others projects too (like openssl)
(from what I underdtood, the contract was between DARPA and
University of Pennsylvania, which then redistributed the money to various
prjects, and DARPA cut all remaining funds to University of Pennsylvania.
Correct me if I'm wrong).
