FreeBSD Project Quarterly Status Report - 3rd Quarter 2017

   This quarter's FreeBSD developments continue to provide excitement and
   promise for further developments. I myself have a soft spot for manual
   pages, so it is especially good to see that we have gained some
   documentation for writing them (and I hope that this will translate to
   more and improved manual pages in the future!). The core@ entry is also
   of particular note, with the introduction of the FCP process and the
   recognition of the first non-committer FreeBSD Project Member (and
   more). Read on to find out more about these, as well as improved
   support for the AMD Zen family of processors (e.g., Ryzen), and a whole
   lot more!
