Jeffrey M. Hsu became a member the FreeBSD project in 1994 as one of its
first 10 committers. He has contributed to many sections of the
operating system in areas such as the networking stack, Java, and a
large number of the early ports in the language category. He has worked
professionally on FreeBSD and NetBSD was offered commit bits to both the
OpenBSD and DragonFlyBSD projects when they were first being formed and
is active in the DragonFlyBSD project today. He holds a degree from U.C.
