FreeBSD "How long have you been using FreeBSD. Months? Years? Decades? And you love using it because of whatever reason but at the same time you're feeling a bit guilty to use it all for free without giving anything back? Well now you'll have the chance to change that. We at FreeBSD are always in need of new people who are willing to spare some of their time and effort into FreeBSD development."

maybe its the license

I wonder if the lack of development is a product of their license choices. While I don't fault them for their choice, I wonder if it is a barrier to growth. Back in the day before Linux was mainstream, they seemed to have a lot of momentum. Now it seems like most development happens on Linux. Gentoo even uses the same type of package structure. Maybe its time to rethink the future?
