You missed the major string change and focused on the edge,
No comment on calling iXsystems :stuff: FreeBSD instead of FreeNAS/TrueOS?

That was the major point of my statement, your miss leading the user

base, so I see no reason that it should be called "FreeBSD package Base",
as it is not, that is a different project.
