To see that it was only eight people who lost their commit bit, and some of them (darren reed, at least) have re-sent their develop agreements. From what I can tell, that's all it took to get your development back. Read the follow-ups for a little more insight into Mr Hannum's (conveniently timed) email and the story about why these agreements had to be re-sent to the netbsd foundation.


Also- have you offered to do a follow-up interview with anyone who might be on the other side of this?

    We'll be happy to follow up on the story from anyone with Wasabi or remaining with NetBSD.

      Well, I can't speak for netbsd, so maybe you could point your willingness to some group @netbsd.org, such as core.

      (Why they weren't included in the first place?)

        Because this is an interview with one of the NetBSD founders. He was asked to talk about the evolution of the project from his point of view.

        Everyone has a point of view. There are a gazillion users and developers (from other BSD project too) that have a point of view on what is working/not-working inside NetBSD. Should I interview each one of them?

        Charles was there when the project started, and he is still around. That's why I thought that his experience and thoughts were worth sharing.

        Obviously if there are mistakes, errors, misunderstandings, missing details, etc... I would be happy to make another interview with the people involved in such things (core@, developers, Wasabi, etc), so that they could make the subject clear.
