Hi Joe

Call for Foundation-supported Project Idea, well not a project but an item of importance in my opinion (the hostile forums disagree with me).

Some help to fix freebsd-update , a very longstanding poor performance problem I took the time to investigate and provide an attempt to fix,

I've been working with Colin Percival towards providing/fine-tuning a workaround but the program itself is monolithic and very intertwined which means a seemingly trivial fix is actually a nightmare - the goal posts keep changing with each step forward. Quite frustrating actually so I'd appreciate some help if mini-projects are acceptable.

(apologies for the thread busting email)
