https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=261058 --- Comment #4 from Graham Perrin <email@example.com> --- (In reply to Graham Perrin from comment #2) Top left of the page: > FreeBSD … A large community has continually developed it > for more than thirty years. … As far as I can tell, the word "it": * refers to BSD * does not refer to FreeBSD. Three points in time: 1978-03-09 1BSD RELEASE Berkeley Software Distribution based off of UNIX <https://freebsdfoundation.org/freebsd/timeline/> 2008-12-28 "… derived from BSD, …" <https://web.archive.org/web/20081228134201/http://www.freebsd.org:80/> 2009-01-01 "… FreeBSD's code base has undergone over thirty years of …" <https://web.archive.org/web/20090101062411/http://www.freebsd.org:80/> … then (I'll not guess when) ambiguity increased, eventually the first paragraph at the home page became wrong. ---- Thoughts: * shorten or remove the paragraph * make better use of the About page * do not attempt to cram the historic relationship between BSD and FreeBSD into the home page * link from somewhere (maybe the About page) to the Foundation-provided timeline * beware of ambiguous words such as "it". -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
