Just to sum it up

Make sure you document with second and third party approval!
What you did and How you did it

There is no reason to document for Why you did it, though this can be 

With this, it comes to that the FreeBSD development and distributing 
model is very well, let's say highly transparent, it is up to you as a 
systems administrator or even developer (they are more out in the clear 
though) to account for (document and get this approved) and be 
transparant for all the actions that have been commited, to the FDA for 
instance in the industries (Pharma, Biomed, etc, I work in). I guess 
fbi, cia, nsa or other 'higher' governmental institutions don't have to 
account for this, because they are much smarter anyway.

I apologise for the dutch grammar.
