first let me say Ilm on my phone so, bottom posting is NOT an option.
I have a concern about the differences between the various BSDs. It seems
an insurmountable task to make cert general enough to cover ALL flavors and
Wouldn't make the most sense to concentrate on that which is common for the
cert process of say a jr or sr admin. Then have seperate specialization
for each BSD flavour? Then as some new BSD project comes out they could
easily draft a cert for their specific blend based upon our guidelines,
which I know we haven't written yet.
Think of this as 'normalizing the cert'
I'm just throwing outside the box ideas to see which ones stick to the wall
and which ones knock it over...:)
