I understand. But from my point of view - there is lack of PR (Public
Relations) for those projects and patches. Somebody did patch with new /
experimental features and almost nobody knows about it. And even if
somebody find the patch / webpage about some project, there is date from
last summer so project seems dead without future or patch can't be
applied to current sources.
So I thing FreeBSD needs some central place for these informations -
maybe called "Experimental Area" with informations + patches +
up-to-date statuses, list of testers, list of bugs / successes, list of
untested things etc. So one can easily find / try / test / fix / help
with any of "useful" things around FreeBSD not included in STABLE or
I thing some Wiki engine + mailinglist + reminders would be useful for
this. Any thoughts?
At this time, some things are on SoC pages, some on personal pages of
FreeBSD developers and some on the other hard to find places.
