Top posting because it's only tangentially related. Also I am in no way
associated with the project, but I have no problem asking for money on
their behalf since pfsense is such a great product...
PFSense has a "bounty" system where people can pledge money for features
they'd like to see developed. One oft-requested feature is a rewrite of
the traffic shaper to include all kinds of fancy stuff like working across
more than two interfaces and the like.
Many pledged, work was done, not everyone followed up:
Perhaps some small donations (like mine) from random users could help
compensate the developer(s) for the hard work done on this feature.
