Contributed Project Ideas


Successful completion of many of the contributed ideas such as Raspberry Pi hardware improvements, support for the exFat filesystem, and adding Capsicum use in more applications would be beneficial for the Project and have clear deliverables.  However, please do not feel limited to these topics.  We welcome proposals with other ideas for improving the base system, the ports tree, documentation, or other areas.  If you think your proposal will benefit the Project, we will consider it.

Please send any questions about submitting a proposal to proposals@freebsdfoundation.org.
