OpenBSD "Frank Hecker from the Mozilla Foundation contacted Theo to inform him that the foundation decided to donate $10000 to the OpenSSH project. Frank mentioned this today in the Mozilla Foundation's status report. The OpenSSH project truly appreciates this gesture of solidarity from such a respectable open source project. Besides this sizeable donation we also received hundreds of smaller donations, mostly from individuals and small companies. Thanks everyone for stepping up to keep OpenBSD/OpenSSH ticking."

This is a good move from the Mozilla foundation. Everybody benefits from OpenSSH not only the OpenBSD project. It would be nice if other "big names" follow the Mozilla Foundation's example.

Small names, like individuals, can help also. Have you pre-ordered you OpenBSD 3.9 sets?

OpenBSD guys want a bit too much for their sets. 45 euro? I'd buy it for 20 and they still would profit. Now I'll just download it ;)
