Yikes.  That may be me.  All of the bad stuff Dennis and Jeff found in
BNR2 (which formed the basis for BSD/OS 1.x) was sent to CSRG and most
of it appeared in 4.4BSD-Lite (which formed the basis for BSD/OS 2.0).
Some additional things have been fixed since then, according to Keith
Sklower and others, and we should see some additional improvements in
4.4BSD-Lite-2, due out any day.

Elise, perhaps Merit should invite Jeff Honig <jch at>
of the GateD Consortium to attend the next meeting and give us an update?
I could sort of do it but I'd be hacking around in the dark -- Jeff 
actually knows what's going on.  It's pretty clear that GateD is an
important tool for North American (and other) Network Operators.
