Crescent Anchor doesn't make the claim to be a FireFly/DragonFly
support only company. We have provided support for a very large array
of companies to help them better support their existing BSD systems.

I find all this hostility towards Crescent Anchor and myself very
amusing as FreeBSD has code in its cvs tree which was development by
Crescent Anchor which was merged back into the open source community.

DES, this is very much a digression from the discussion about trying
to find a method in which FreeBSD could provide open source access to
the general public for its perforce trees.

All of this talk is point-less, I will no longer be responding to this thread.
