Hi Adriaan,

What's WG? What BSDCan video you are talking about, is it possible to 
include any links? What's core@ and developers@? Can't see any such lists.

I've briefly checked the list archives in the last few months and 
haven't noticed any thread related to this "Introduction". What's going on?

If I may, if core@ was asking anything of anyone on this list they would 
likely post a question here, not do it through a BSDCan video?
