ipfw2 is being actively maintained and developed.
ipfilter I'm not so sure about, Darren doesn't seem to have been all that
active lately. I suspect the locking changes have given him reason to
hide, he usually prefers to wait until such states of flux have settled
out before he tries to repair what he sees as damage to ipfilter. ;^)
Your point about maintenance is well taken. No action of that magnitued
would be undertaken without a thorough bikeshed^Wdiscussion on -arch.
Where am I, and what am I doing in this handbasket?
