"FreeBSD has a new core team which was elected by active FreeBSD
committers. According to the FreeBSD Handbook, the core team
"constitutes the project's 'Board of Directors', responsible for
deciding the project's overall goals and direction as well as
managing specific areas of the FreeBSD project landscape."
"In any project, you need at least a little bit of leadership.
For instance, someone has to decide who is going to be added to the
list of committers," said Nick Sayer, the election officer. "I like
to compare FreeBSD's structure (like an archery target -- core in
the middle, committers in the next ring, and users in the outermost
ring) to Linux's [structure]. Linus is Linux's 'core' (at least
when we're talking about the kernel)."
"In this way, Linux's 'core' is not fault tolerant. FreeBSD, on
the other hand, is much better equipped to survive the loss of a
core member. And now that we have formalized the management of core
somewhat, it is just that much better."
