I've been sponsoring confget, dante, dma (which he has vastly extended lately,  
actually with quite some *clean* and useful code, which was also forwarded 
upstream), and s5 for quite long time and I think Peter would make an useful 
addition to the project, both technically and *socially*. I know him 
personally for quite long time now, and I've been witnessing his in-depth 
knowledge in several domains like C, Perl, networking and security. He has 
also been an official FreeBSD committer for quite long time now, though I'm not 
particularly sure whether he has interest (and spare time to invest) in our 
kfreebsd ports. He is the second person I support during my ~3 year DD-life, 
so I guess I don't tend to support people lightly ;-)

This is very good news, indeed.

That reminds me that we need to exchange fingerprints sooner or later, since I 
haven't signed your current key, yet.

JFTR: TBH, if I were FD, I'd probably fast-forward that guy (I can't be quite 
bothered to write that if I don't truly believe it)

Thanks for your contributions to the project.
