Re: ipf


I am afraid that is only possible if Darren will re-license OpenBSD branch
under BSD license (as he probably has done for FreeBSD if i understand
`granted permission' correctly). And that is unlikely to happen because of
conflict escalation we observed here on the lists :( Too bad, but there is
the `old BSD way' to grab ipfilter distribution separately and to install
it on your system. It is somehow time-consuming if there are some port
problems with latest release but it is better than nothing :(

About `code abusing' by OpenBSD.. There was public cvs and there was always
a way to back-port any OpenBSD changes back into main ipf tree. What's wrong
with it?
