Freetype/2 is a driver based on freetype which is a library
Yes, I would put it in /pub/os2/system/drivers/freetype or let it in misc if you want to keep that or in /pub/os2/system/drivers/fonts if that makes sense.

Hi

I will keep the freetype stuff on "/pub/os2/system/drivers/misc". Thanks.

I was wondering, why the sever is called Hobbes? because of Thomas Hobbes (Philosopher), or was it for Calvin and Hobbes (comic strip) ? Just in case Hobbes (From Calvin and Hobbes) is based also based in Thomas Hobbes.

“The Mathom-house it was called; for anything that Hobbits had no immediate use for, but were unwilling to throw away, they called a mathom. Their dwellings were apt to become rather crowded with mathoms, and many of the presents that passed from hand to hand were of that sort.”

Hi

The  "/pub/os2/util/disk" directory is done. I'm moving to "/pub/os2/util/system"

Feedback is welcome if I'm missing something.

Hi

I think I'm pretty happy with:
- /pub/os2/util/disk
- /pub/os2/util/file
- /pub/os2/util/system

Now I will check the other stuff on /util
- Archiver, Convert, encrypt, font, printer.

Hi

Just in case, I would like someone with more experience on BBS that can help thinking the best way to organize the BBS related files.  I know what a BBS is, but I had never connected or set up one.

Currently Hobbes has:
- "/pub/os2/apps/comm/bbs" which I need to reorganize, since I think many of those are utils and not apps.
- "/pub/os2/server/bbs" The reorganized BBS server applications.
- "/pub/os2/util/BBS" the reorganized BBS utilities.

I'm not happy yet on how to reorganize this, because of my lack of knowledge of what is Door and what is Maximus. Should there have their own directory? or should be all in "/pub/os2/util/BBS".

Maximus is a BBS system,  and "door"s are BBS interfaces to external programs.
