The Bad Code Offsets project of The Alliance for Code Excellence is “a way to undo the bad code other people have written without actually replacing the bad code. Much like carbon offsets, money used to buy Bad Code Offsets goes towards open-source projects which not only produce good code, but produce software that helps developers build good software”.
We’re kicking off our End-of-Year Fund Raising Drive! Our goal this year is to raise $300,000. So far, we have raised just over $159,000 so we are little more than half way towards our goal. Please consider making a donation and help us to spread the word by tweeting and blogging about the drive.
Rafal Jaworowski and Semihalf have been awarded a grant to provide FreeBSD with support for the flattened device tree (FDT) technology. This project allows for describing hardware resources of a computer system and their dependencies in a platform-neutral and portable way.
Pawel Jakub Dawidek has been awarded a grant to implement storage replication software that will enable users to use the FreeBSD operating system for highly available configurations where data has to be shared across the cluster nodes. The project is partly being funded by OMCnet Internet Service GmbH and TransIP BV.
