YOU CAN VIEW
Clicking on individual faces will show the other size face
(large or small).
This List Is / Should Be
- An inclusive reference list to those publicly
contributing to FreeBSD's further development (normally by
posting or committing new code, documentation, or diffs);
both major and minor players At present the
page includes some `plain users' (ie people who do not
contribute enhancements back to FreeBSD) as well as
`contributing developers'; later `plain users' may be
removed, to make room for more `contributing
- Discussed on mail list email@example.com (rather
than firstname.lastname@example.org or
email@example.com), to avoid accumulating a vast page
of `plain users'.
Not complete. Additions welcome:
- Please supply 2 gif or jpg files, one being the
_minimum_ size file you can sensibly achieve, (
for the Small Faces page, and
one rather large, for the Large
Faces page (please crop the margins with xv or
similar, like the existing faces, to avoid wasted page
- Mail me your text table entry pre-edited to be in
exactly the same format as all the other
- Quote the email address & web address that
will least often change. (If you have a
freebsd.org URL use that, with a .forward & Web page
pointing to your current local email & home
- gzip & uuencode your
firstname_lastname.large.gif_or_jpg & mail me.
This List Is Not / Should Not Be
- For people who just use FreeBSD as a work
platform, I don't want to maintain such a large list (but
until I get more faces, I dont need to split the page up
into 2 groups).
- An exclusive list. - It is not an honour roll, or
core team list etc.
- By invitation only. - Don't wait to be invited,
send me your face !
- A list of people who were once involved but have
- A list of people who have written code that FreeBSD
- A companies list, or a product list
- A who-does-what list.
- Just for nice photos, & big photos, - ANY
PHOTO IS BETTER THAN NO PHOTO (people can upgrade
their photo later, Logos would be a waste of space here,
purpose is to be able to recognise people at meetings,
train stations etc. If you want a good size & quality
photo of the person access their own home web page, or
mail them & ask for one. Thomas Gellekum wins first
prize for saving us disc space, he uses a mere 1.8K
You can choose to view Small Faces
(faster to download) or Large
Faces (more detail etc). Clicking on an individual
face will show the other size face (large or small).
I have converted all GIF files to JPEG (with quality=75%), to
reduce image sizes dramatically, gif files are still in place,
so hand compose an individual URL if you need a face at maximum
quality ! Here's some examples faces/small/julian_stacey.jpg
and faces/large/guy_helmer.jpg and
Explanation of How Viewing Options are Implemented
By having 2 sub directories, small & large; each has a
seperate set of small or large gif images, but shares a common
index file called `faces.html', by having a symbolic link
faces.html -> ../faces.html . The effect of toggling face
size by clicking on it is achieved by each sub directory (small
& large) having a symbolic link named `other' which points
to ../large or ../small respectively.
