:There has been talk on this list about the import of a new snapshot of the
:KAME network stack. KAME produces snapshots for the freebsd 4.x branch
:weekly. A KAME update is also on the TODO list for freebsd 5.2 (so
:dragonfly isn't the only project considering KAME updates). Restructuring
:the source tree might hinder the efforts of the people trying to import a
:KAME snapshot if things get too different.
Yes, that's true. But the entire network subsystem is going to be
seriously modified in coming months anyway. Our best bet is going to
be to do an import 'as late as possible' in order to do the major work
once. Incremental updates are always a whole lot easier, unless the
KAME folks are still making huge changes to their base code.
