What do William and Lynne Jolitz have to do with BSD?
William and Lynne have a long history with both the University of California and BSD. According to the website:
Authors of 386BSD were William Jolitz and Lynne Jolitz. William Jolitz did 2BSD(76-81) on PDP-11, a collection of work from many sources. Lynne Jolitz was an early 2BSD user (and critic) who challenged BSD system assumptions, reduced them, wrote and redesigned them. 386BSD departed from BSD as a return to UNIX origins but in modern form.
In addition, totally unacknowledged by the University of California was the almost daily presence of William Jolitz on campus for years in the assembly of the general BSD release, having arranged for donations by Compaq, interviews with members of the press, and drop-ins by many software experts to encourage contribution and cooperation. Original logs kept from the time show contributions of vastly more than "6 modules" claimed by such sources.
