No, advocacy is defined as the act or process of advocating or
supporting a cause or proposal, in this case the FreeBSD operating

There are many of us that are on this list because it's low traffic and
tends to stick to the topic of advocating the FreeBSD operating system.
It seems to be a serious stretch to suggest that an extended discussion of

On an actual advocacy note, look for a FreeBSD press release describing
