 Subject:  RE: [m0n0wall-dev] $1000 prize for FreeBSD 6.1 port of m0n0wall
 Date:  Mon, 19 Jun 2006 21:26:32 +0200
What a coincidence, I was thinking of sending an email with the
suggestion to let 1.23 be the last 4.11 based m0n0wall if everybody
would agree and that development on 6.1 should start :) I personally
don't need a 6.1 version but since I'm doing the Captive Portal stuff I
am going to work on the new m0n0wall version as well.

I also think that it would be fair to split a piece of the amount of
money to the people who did the most of the job. (that's up to Manuel to
decide offcourse)

We are very lucky having already some sort of 6.1 M0n0wall version
called pfsense where the devs already learned a lot and where we should
take a look at to overcome the same mistakes. In this matter I think it
would become logical that Scott (or somebody else from the Pfsense dev
team) would help us in this way.

As final part (this reflects my personal opinion): Testing is really
important. Currently most people do want to test, but few actually give
feedback. Please stop asking features if you're not willing to test them
out and give feedback to the devs (we really need feedback guys/girls).
For the 1.3 release I think there will be a feature stop and work should
be focused on getting everything to work in a good way. 'World Wide
Hacking' isn't a good thing and I want to add an additional requirement:
the code has to be as 'clean' as possible and readable.

Let the challenge begin and with it the 1.3b SVN and 1.3 software

Happy coding everybody and we'll see you at the next release ;)

PS there should be a 1.3 project coordinator, I'm willing todo that.

Kind Regards,
