Could someone please comment on the following criticism found in Wikipedia:

stability vulnerabilities (FreeBSD RELENG 4 4 0 RELEASE for IPv4 and 
FreeBSD's origin KAME for IPv6). Official eCos maintainers do not appear to 
monitor FreeBSD or KAME for security or stability updates, but rather rely 
on minimal and insufficient bug reports from users of eCos.
The SNMP package is rudimentary at best, once again, apparently due to its
