1.2       murray      1: I have served on the Core Team for the past 6 years, and I'd like to
                      2: again serve to continue my work.  During the past 2 years I have
                      3: primarily divided my time between advocacy, corporate relations, the
                      4: website/documentation, and Summer of Code.  In previous years I was
                      5: also involved in release engineering and installation tools.  Over the
                      6: next 2 years I will again devote my time to these activities.
                      8: Some of my specific accomplishments over this past term include:
                     10: * Leading the FreeBSD participation in two successive Google Summer of
                     11:   Code programs (with help of rwatson and all the mentors).  We had 46
                     12:   students in the past two years of participation in this program, and
                     13:   33 students in the first two years.  This amounts to nearly $400,000
