FreeBSD needs you!

Oh well, it’s time to renew our job offer to you. Of course it’s all
for free, and you can’t earn any money out of it, but you’ll get a
big thanks, hugs and love from the community. Ask yourself, how
long have you been using FreeBSD. Months? Years? Decades? And you
love using it because of whatever reason but at the same time
you’re feeling a bit guilty to use it all for free without giving
anything back? Well now you’ll have the chance to change that.

We at FreeBSD are always in need of new people who are willing
to spare some of their time and effort into contributing to FreeBSD.

Let me share some of my experience. I have (re)built a lot of
teams in the past, such as gecko@, kde@, python@, and I was
involved in the creation of FreeBSD vbox@ team. Now a few years
later, things are better but still not as active as we would like them.
Most of our port teams still need more members. We would very
much appreciate to see some new contributers and testers. :).

Okay, most of these need an understanding of programming and
scripting. If you think that you can’t do any of that, testing would
also help much. FreeBSD is one of the best documented open source
project, so that’s another area that could use some help too. Check
if FreeBSD.org is available in your language, or start helping to
improve the FreeBSD documents in your language. It would be very
helpful and the community will thank you for that. So if you would
like to offer some help, ping us on IRC. 🙂
