Description Andreas Bjørnestad 2020-10-29 08:23:51 UTC
I suggest adding "Unix: A History and a Memoir" by Brian Kernighan (https://www.cs.princeton.edu/~bwk/memoir.html) to the B.8. UNIX® History section of the FreeBSD handbook.


Kernighan, Brian Unix: A History and a Memoir, Kindle Direct Publishing, 2019. ISBN-13: 978-1695978553

This might be a nice addition. Would you like to write a patch to make it happen?
Comment 2 Andreas Bjørnestad 2020-10-29 09:46:52 UTC

Glad to hear!

I sure would like to make a patch. I touched FreeBSD for the first time last week, so I'm very new to this and how the community works. Might take some time, but I'll try. Would the best thing be to attach an svn patch here?

(In reply to Andreas from comment #2)
A commit-ready patch would be perfect, but it's also fine if you just submit a plain-text paragraph (i.e., the actual content) that you think should be included in the chapter. The doc committers can handle the formatting part if necessary.

The fdp-primer quick start made this a very easy and comfortable process. Superb work. See commit-ready patch.
