i participate in both netbsd and openbsd development. i find it
extremely useful as i find bug on one side, i can fix another too.
and while doing so, i discuss with theo and others about the bugs.
we notify each other. theo (and others) drops me a note when there's
serious bug found.
if the notification ceases due to the moderation thingy, i really am
in trouble. i can't fix bugs in netbsd promptly enough when openbsd
fix bugs. and these days, the delay has serious impact on netbsd
as there are script kiddies watching various fixes in multiple OSes,
write attack scripts, and try it out to other OSes. as openbsd and
netbsd has the same root, many of such attacks that is hinted by
openbsd can work on netbsd.
i do understand the battle happened in the past, but i believe it is
time to move on.
