      Ok, here is the gitorious repo link.
      I tried to add some code for puffs from the FreeBSD.
      The make file wont work you need to make a minor change.
      You can send me your gitorious id, so that I can add you to
        the project and you can fetch the files.
      Thank You,

          one. So, better if we ask him otherwise two guys can end up
          with the same project.

                  I don't have any good advice on where to start; the
                  NetBSD site does have
                  some documentation.  I don't think puffs has undergone
                  any significant
                  porting work for DragonFly (or any other system?) so
                  you get to be the
                  It would be wonderful to have - I look forward to the
                  proposal.  We'll
                  know if DragonFly's in Summer of Code by the 18th.
    I've started to work on your puffs code . (Was on a small vacation
    until now ) .Now i find that for puffs framework the userspace
    communication is done by using a char device in putter . I think i
    should start porting it to DragonFly before i start out with puffs ?
    Or do you have any other ideas ?
