I think you've already answered the question. You don't want to ask
OpenBSD questions, you want to ask system admin questions. You
want to ask what they've done with OpenBSD, but really, what they
say about their philosophy of doing things is more important by far.
If you need to test them, why not hand over a blank machine and a
CD, and ask them to build a system...
