I don't think they are wrong about feeling that the site just seems to
totally ignore OS X. I guess the FreeBSD and Solaris guys feel the
same way reading over recent discussions. Alexandre does not treat
patches from anyone as a second class citizen but the site does seem
to be very Linux centric rather than platform agnostic. Like read the
Myths page. Its all about Linux. I am happy to rewrite some bits of
the site to make it broader in scope.
