I wandered into FreeBSD/390 in early December 2011 and offered to help. Shortly thereafter, I suffered a severe brain crash and had to run away from it for my own sanity (or what was left of it), then the project was abandoned. Fast forward 8 years, and I'm a FreeBSD user again. Another 3 years, and I maintain a port, contribute bug reports, content, and reviews to documentation and manual pages, help a bit with IRC-based user support on occasion, and now learning the ropes of being a committer.

Against ambiguity, the words themselves contend in vain.

'Ah!' said the Elder Committer. 'Now I know who has been playing with the Tree;' and he called out, 'What are you doing, Pau Amma?'
And Pau Amma, deep down below, answered, 'Once a day and once a night I pull then rebase my branch. Once a day and once a night I commit. Leave me alone.'
