First think I can dig up is this:
https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/g/chromium-dev/c/b57hDs8yE4g/m/5tXefZ74AQAJ

In short, OpenBSD asked how to upstream patches, and Google politely
declined - "we've decided to not accept patches introducing *BSD support
at this time.", said Google.

I believe that wasn't the first time the topic was raised (and the patches
declined).

Christoph
