Under normal circumstances, this should belong to freebsd-advocacy@,
but I've given a look there and it looks like the list is dead/spammed
to death.

I sent the following message to the FreeBSD Foundation a few days ago,
but I did not get any reply.

I assume the work of the Foundation is not based on the principle of
secrecy, so they won't take offence if I ask the community what they
think. If anything is not clear, just ask.
