I don't commit.  I submit and others commit.  This hasn't really been  
a handicap ;-)

Again, netconsonance is "Jo" and a few random others that contract via  
the company to avoid having to create their own company.   The "We" in  
most of my discussions is my $EMPLOYER.    And you can see their logos  
and name listed in numerous places.

I'm sorry, but I have neither the time nor the interest in trying to  
provide a FreeBSD resume to someone.  This is a tangent, and never in  
my experience has a tangent moved the original discussion forward.

Are you in a position to make changes?  What role in this do you  
have?  What value is there answering these questions?
(which have been answered many times if you google for them)

I'd rather just drop this tangent.
