Over the past several years I have enjoyed watching FreeBSD's security improve. The change in attitude towards security issues of FreeBSD has been refreshing to see. This improvement could not have happened without the support of the FreeBSD committers.

I will be succeeded by Kris Kennaway. He has been my deputy for the past ten months in charge of the ports system. As many of you have noticed, he has been responsible for the FreeBSD project taking security of the entire system to the next level. He has done an excellent job coordinating the securing of the ports and the dissemination of vulnerabilities to the public. The FreeBSD project will be in good hands with Kris at the Security helm.

I will continue to be involved with FreeBSD and the FreeBSD security team. Over the years this team has grown from the Security Officer and his deputy to include key security personnel in the FreeBSD project who have the time and energy to help maintain FreeBSD's security. This team now consists of emeritus Security Officers, key security architects of the FreeBSD project as well as project administrative personnel. The team has grown to 7 members who contribute on a regular basis.
