OpenBSD OpenBSD has asked for donations: "To fulfill most development goals OpenBSD should be generating about $100K USD. With that amount of money the project can finance 1 large and 4 small hackathons per year. Pay the bills and a part-time developer to mind the shop when Theo isn't around. In an ideal world we would have a sponsor per hackathon and the CD sales would be paying for other expenses." On a very related note, pre-orders for OpenBSD 3.9 are now available.

No, it was a Troll, plain and simple. You brought up the concept of converting a BSD licensed programme to the GPL, the very opposite of what the BSDs do. You alluded to the concept that more people would support the project financially if it didn't have the core goals that it does.
You also implied that only the BSDs share some sort of responsibility to help OpenSSH continue - last I checked every Linux distribution uses it.
