"The OpenBSD Foundation is pleased to announce that it has completed arrangements with the University of Alberta in Edmonton to host the 2008 Annual OpenBSD Developer's Conference (C2K8 Hackathon) from June 7 to June 15, 2008," stated an announcement by the OpenBSD Foundation, continuing:
"The facility support from the University of Alberta Computer Science Department will provide C2K8 the best facilities yet for the annual OpenBSD Developer Conference. C2K8 will be the 10th annual event of its kind. Previous hackathons have produced tools such as the PF firewall, OpenBGP, relayd and spamd, as well as innumerable critical improvements to OpenBSD, OpenSSH, and related projects.
"This year, the OpenBSD Foundation will disburse approximately $15,000 to support C2K8, enabling more than 50 OpenBSD developers from around the world to attend this important event. The Foundation thanks all who have generously donated the resources to make C2K8 possible."
Bob Beck announced the creation of the OpenBSD Foundation with three directors including himself, Kjell Wooding, and Ken Westerback. "The OpenBSD Foundation is pleased to announce today it has completed its organization as a Canadian federal non-profit corporation and is ready for public interaction," the press release began, going on to explain:
"The OpenBSD Foundation has been formed for the purpose of supporting the OpenBSD project, and related projects such as OpenSSH, OpenBGPD, OpenNTPD, and OpenCVS. In particular it will act as a single point of contact for persons and organizations requiring a legal entity to deal with when they wish to support OpenBSD in any way.
"The OpenBSD Foundation will initially concentrate on facilitating larger donations of equipment, funds, documentation and resources. Small scale donations should continue to be submitted through the existing mechanisms."
