And my e-mails have always discussed ways to get more resources.   
Recently we even had a group of people trying to arrange for more  
explicit corporate support for testing and release process.  For some  
reason unclear to me, not a single developer has stepped up and said  
"Great.  Here's how we could use you..."   The entire concept of  
getting *more resources* is the elephant in the room that everyone  
seems intent to avoid considering.

Maybe, just maybe, there is some reason why FreeBSD doesn't want more  
people helping.  Or ... something.  I haven't the vaguest clue.  If  
there is some reason why getting paid people to work on testing and  
release cycle is a bad idea, would someone please stand up and explain?
