Yes. Fred Sanchez just publicly (at that conference) Apple's Darwin
kernel to the FreeBSD source tree. He has been working with me off the
list on getting a group press announcement out. He's also going to
publicly acknowledge the Open Source benefits at FreeNIX next month.

He's been very open about the BSD connection and there's a web page
acknowledgement of their BSD heritage already. He hasn't said they're
dropping the NetBSD or MACH connections, though, quite the contrary.
