Yes, it is odd. However, I challenge people to donate to the
project a set of documentation. If you think it is easy, and all
it takes is calling them up, then go ahead. I only ask that you be
curteous, so the next person that tries is not screwed.
Even if the documentation effort fails, documentation exists in the
form of existing BSD drivers. In fact, unless the SCSI subsystem is
radically different in OpenBSD than FreeBSD (which from looking at
Matt Jacob's Qlogic,ISP drivers, I think it is not) you can just merge
it into the OpenBSD tree, perform the minor tinkering, and it will
most likely just work. Isn't it worth a try for those developers who
happen to have cards to test this on?
I'm just saying that instead of complaining about things which aren't
available you should take advantage of the resources which _are_.
And in that vein I'm trying to be courteous in showing that support
for these cards is possible, thus encouraging OpenBSD to support more
and more hardware.
