Hi Desmond,

Thank you for your mail.

1.  But what is the purpose of your mail?  Is it about something
useful for VirtualBox developers to know?  This mailing list is only
for discussion for VBox developers about building and improving VBox.
If your mails do not fit into that category, please send them to the
VBox users' mailing list instead.

2.  Is your mail about building VirtualBox on FreeBSD?  The VirtualBox
developers are 100% able to make VirtualBox build on FreeBSD.  They do
not have time to make the kernel-related parts of VBox work though.
If your mail is about building VirtualBox on FreeBSD, please note that
the more mails you write about the subject to the mailing list, the
less time the VBox developers have to do their job.

Kind regards,
Jason
