I'm willing to work on it (doing so now), but from what you have said
here it sounds like you're in the same boat as myself as I'm very new to

What about collaboration between us with a Freebsd core team mentor? Is
this possible? Code, test, then send the new code through the core team
member for approval as well as hints to get the job done?
