Mark, you bring up a lot of valid points, which i agree with. Maybe i 
needed a refresher. I can certainly understand the developers loosing 
interest when they are denied the ability to work on what they are 
themselves interested in. Perhaps a frequent release cycle is the 
answer. However, i think things should stay in -CURRENT a bit longer 
before they make it to -STABLE, i.e. the openbsd dhcp client import 
caused a lot of problems. In any case, i am grateful to all the 
contributors and quite happy with what FreeBSD is today, so there wont 
be any more complains from me on this subject, i vented my steam, and 
got a refresh on reality.
