Hi,
I was reading the pages from Redhat Linux and it said:

"The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), has decided
to stop charging for their POSIX Conformance Test Suite 151-2, in hopes
that the POSIX standard may be more broadly applied. Red Hat Software
applauds the move, and has obtained the suites for consideration. We
would encourage all Linux developers to take advantage of this
development. Comments and questions can be directed to Martha Gray
<gray@sst.ncsl.nist.gov> at NIST."

POSIX was one of the objectives behind 4.4BSD. Will FreeBSD follow this
tendency? Is it posible to follow it, or BSD is just too different from
POSIX?

Pedro.
