no, thats so wrong.

debian is do-o-cratic, which means if you care about something you can
do it your self. there are no developers which wait to be assigend to a
project, and there is no way to force a developer to work on a project.
thats free software.

so the argument, that they "rejected to care for other kernels" is
simple invalid. if there are some developers who care, nobody will stop
them in getting the bsd port in shape for release.

the release team just decided, not to wait for them. its the same for
many packages too, which will not be released because of rc bugs.
