See <http://kerneltrap.org/node/6497/print> for the reason
(from his point of view of course):
|I've been a FreeBSD src committer for a bit more than
|a year. I've been trying to maintain my ipw, iwi, ral,
|and ural drivers inside the FreeBSD source tree.
|I left the FreeBSD project a few weeks ago. Some developers

|to reply. Because of this, I was no longer having fun working
|in FreeBSD so I left. This is kind of sad since I still have
|a lot of respect for most FreeBSD developers.
