A Wireguard balhé oly mértékben eszkalálódott, hogy a FreeBSD Core Team jónak látta nyilvánosan megerősíteni, hogy milyen irányelveket követ, illetve fog követni a jövőben a FreeBSD projekt a kódminőség kapcsán:
|Code quality is an essential FreeBSD value [...] The recent concerns regarding the WireGuard patches remind us that our development processes must always continue to mature. [...] We were excited to provide a kernel WireGuard implementation in FreeBSD 13.0. Before the if_wg(4) rewrite was committed, several FreeBSD developers proactively worked on fixing bugs and writing tests and documentation for the original implementation. In other words, we had spent time during the release's Q/A period looking for problems, and that unfortunately culminated in if_wg(4) being removed from 13.0 during the release cycle. [...] Over the next month the FreeBSD Core Team will lead a discussion on appropriate pre-commit testing, static analysis, code review, and integration policies to avoid a repeat of this situation and to continue improving FreeBSD's code quality.
