We make no discrimation on "membership", especially none based on skill level.
The rules are like this:
No-one should stumble over the nitty-gritty details of getting a *BSD up and running. We will help out with software if the CD is not availible in local bookstores; we'll give a hand if the OS doesn't like the users hardware; we help if the peculiars of *BSD administration make trouble (especially true for Linux converts).
We'll help everyone who's willing to learn and use *BSD. No help will be provided for people too lazy to to the dirty work themselves to get an end-user system or an Internet gateway running (and want to spare the money for a commercial solution).
For those considering *BSD as a turnkey system we are more than willing to give out addresses of professionals making a living on that.
There are intensive discussions on appropriate (PC) hardware. We surely can give some recommendations for that.
We'd like to use the cumulation of *BSD hackers in Hamburg also to engage in serious projects; which are still to be found. Most probably they will focus on kernel/driver work or networking code for FreeBSD.
Also under discussion is the dedication of time to promoting *BSD to further enhance the availible ressources. Of course, most of us rather like to hack away...
In any case, besides NetBSD, FreeBSD, and OpenBSD, we need BSDharhar :-)
