In addition to the suggestions made by others, you should repeat this post on
the advocacy at freebsd.org mailing list. Folks on that mailing list are
looking for opportunities like this and more likely to have suggestions for
you on how to make this work. questions at freebsd.org is primarily a tech
help group, and you're likely to get answers like "see doc x" instead of
offers to work with you.
