Sounds like a sensible proposal.
Agreed. Some of the comments on that thread too. oof.
Similarly, I secretly hope FreeBSD eventually removes all the various firewalls it currently supports (why so many?!) except ipfw, and backports ipfw3 features from DrafonflyBSD.
Sadly some NetBSD users have a negative view regarding the removal of cruft - see this thread from tech-kern earlier in March. It really does degenerate towards the end…
Which pf does z OpenBSD use? Obviously it’s their own in-tree, but is that the one NBSD is removing?
it’s the “same” pf, but the one in NetBSD originates in a very old version of OpenBSD.
What is PF?
Package Filter (Firewall)
