andrijapanic commented on issue #3401: Support for bhyve hypervisor on FreeBSD
   Contributions are always welcome - as long as it's done properly/with good
   What we are, perhaps, trying to say,  is that i.e. you / ixsystems /
   someone else interested to "sponsor" (i.e. spend hundreds and hundreds and
   hyndreds of hours) can do this and contribute back to community/upstream.
   All contributions are welcome, as long as it makes sense. I'm personally
   not familiar with BSD virtualisation and thus can't comment. My point of
   view is - if something (a feature, a new hypervisors) can be used by (there
   is interest) by a wider audience, then it makes perfect sense to contribute
   to the community - otherwise people are also running their own forks with
   modifications that go against wider audience interest (hopefully I was
   clear and you don't get me wrong here). Adding a new hypervisor is a huge
   thing, and beside feature code, a serious series of test needs to be
   developed for such huge feature.
   I would say this kind of work requires serious experience with CloudStack
   development and architecture (both system architecture and internal
   components a.k.a. code architecture / components) and not sure a regular
   Java guy (i.e. not CloudStack developer, no matter how great he/she is) can
   pull it on his own. I hope you understand my point here - you need to be
   aware of the ecosystem.
   If this is something you would like to continue with - let us know, we can
   discuss and engage fellow ACS developers. (I'm not a developer).
