Just to remind anybody interested in FreeBSD development, the FreeBSD Foundation is

soliciting the submission of proposals for work relating to any of the major subsystems or infrastructure within the FreeBSD operating system. A budget of $80,000 was allocated for 2008 to fund multiple development projects. Proposals will be evaluated based on desirability, technical merit and cost-effectiveness.

If you want to help improve FreeBSD and would like to receive funding to do so, be quick: the deadline is 15 August 2008.

Details and requirements of the proposals can be downloaded here. Alternatively, there’s also the BSD Fund should you want financial support while developing for BSD.
