The fact is that with all our plans and formal votes, the direction
of the project is ultimately determined by the people who do the work.

If you care about NetBSD vs. FreeBSD, hurry up and build support for 
the NetBSD kernel and packages.  If the work all ends up being done 
by people who want Debian GNU/FreeBSD, that's what we'll have, and 
nobody will have any right to complain.
