FreeBSD FreeBSD's Security officer Colin Percival seeks sponsorship. This has happened before with other FreeBSD contributors. "I'm hoping to raise $15000 Canadian (about US$13000) to pay me to work full-time on FreeBSD for 16 weeks over the summer. This will allow me to devote more time to my role as FreeBSD Security Officer, perform a complete overhaul of FreeBSD Update, and make some significant improvements to Portsnap."

He's got a running tally going

Wow, after two days, he's truckin' right along. Almost 10% of the way there! It's really cool that he's keeping the page updated like that.

Hopefully the story spreads through the news some more. I'd give him about a week before the intial burst really dies out. Looks like he might make a very good percentage of it in that time.
