OpenBSD Bitrig, a fork of OpenBSD, has surfaced. It aims to be less conservative than OpenBSD by being less loose with new features and only supporting modern architectures. Bitrig has also converted over to using LLVM's clang rather than GNU gcc for it's toolchain/compiler. A roadmap for Bitrig is also available.

Very interesting to see this!
Sounds like a promising project, so it'll be great to see what they come up with. PC-BSD has done some great things using FreeBSD as a base, so maybe this will eventually become somewhat similar (but for OpenBSD).

It sounds like they still want to have a small codebase, so that's good IMO. The one thing that I'd love to see with PC-BSD is a small variant of it - CD-sized rather than DVD-sized.
