LOL, you've made my day, sir. It's hardly wise to consider FreeBSD as a

Except for NetBSD, OpenBSD, DragonflyBSD, and, of course, OSX.

As to the political issues - looks like a reasonable, and detailed policy AND PROCEDURES to me - not like the kangaroo court in the Debian world.  And then there was all the bullshit about how systemd was handled - including resignations of core developers over it.
