1.) Do you plan to distribute several MTAs, like NetBSD currently does? Or
do you already (first check said no, but maybe I missed something)?
2.) Do you plan to distribute PAM in base?
3.) Did anybody look close enough on TenDRA yet? I'd like to know how much
GNUism is in OpenBSDs base, building mechanism, so basicly it adds up to:
How long do we/you have to wait till TenDRA can be used?
3.2.) Even if the compiler/debugger/linker stuff runs on BSDLed code from
the TenDRA people, do you roughly know how much software in base is GPL/GNU,
and how much of that must be there?
4.) I saw lkm-stuff in your tree, do you want the same situation as linux has,
like that "too much" is modulized, or do you want that API for situations
where kernel mods are the only bearable solution?
5.) What do you think about devfs? Will it be there in the near or far
6.) Do you guys like X11R6? Would you remove it if $somebody comes up with
some basic window-manager-alike basing on something simple like svgalibs?
Or, rather, would you distribute that in base, too?
I hope I did not forget too much, thanks for reading and possibly
asking me stuff or answering
