I saw in this status report about:
  • Ethernet support for pf
  • pf syncookie support
and would like to clarify:
  1. Isn't pf develped by OpenBSD?
    1. And if so, would these be the same development for pf in OpenBSD and these same features would make its way into OpenBSD as well?
    2. And if not, pf for FreeBSD is forked and its development is completely independent of OpenBSD - is the case?
  2. Aren't pf for FreeBSD and OpenBSD the same - as long as the version number is the same?

Yes, they are not the same:

They are not, and it's really annoying, because OpenBSD's has way more useful features so I can't put FreeBSD on my router.
