Welcome, Manav.

Your question is very broad, and you've posted it to a couple of lists.

In general, there are 4 places you can go, to get more information on 
FreeBSD development. Which area is most active depends on each community.

## wiki

- FreeBSD wiki has a lot of developer-focused info,
  not always up to date, usually points you to where-ever a group is most
  active. e.g. - <-  see the youtube links for videos
   from last developer virtual summit a couple of weeks ago

## patch review

- phabricator where patches go for community review. Many teams have a specific
  reviewers group. You can sign up, and join, the bhyve group there, for example:
  there are other ones for docs, ports, etc, as well.

Specifically for bhyve:

- ARMv8 implementation -

- Snapshot Save and Restore multiple devices -

- Using JSON format for saving and restoring the state -

- Warm Migration feature for bhyve -

## source commits

- the source code, keeping an eye on active commits. has all the commits for CURRENT. You can subscribe to the list, and set up a few rules to filter stuff you're interested in. Ports & Docs have their own lists, as

## chat (IRC)

Many of the FreeBSD communities are also on IRC
including #bhyve on and the more general #freebsd channel.

If you're not familiar with IRC, try a free irccloud account to get started:

Most of the above applies to other areas of FreeBSD, you can check the wiki for specifics.
