The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to announce that Edward Tomasz
Napierala has joined as its second member of technical staff.  This is
a continuation of the Foundation's plan to invest in staff in 2013.

A FreeBSD committer since 2007, Edward previously completed a number
of projects under Foundation grants, including safe device removal
with mounted filesystems, growing mounted filesystems, and resource

Edward is currently implementing a native in-kernel iSCSI stack (both
target and initiator) for this increasingly popular block storage
protocol.  "Although there are a number of iSCSI target implementations
that support FreeBSD, the project lacks a high performance and reliable
in-kernel target.  As iSCSI gains favor, this stack will be a key
element in maintaining FreeBSD's competitive position in enterprise and
open-source deployments" said Justin T. Gibbs, president of the FreeBSD
Foundation.  The project is expected to be completed in October 2013.

Another part of Edward's responsibilities will be assisting the FreeBSD
Security Team in preparing security advisories and patches.

Edward lives in Warsaw, Poland.
