NetBSD Charles Hannum, co-founder of NetBSD posted to 3 major BSD lists saying that "The NetBSD Project has stagnated to the point of irrelevance. It has gotten to the point that being associated with the project is often more of a liability than an asset. I will attempt to explain how this happened, what the current state of affairs is, and what needs to be done to attempt to fix the situation."

As someone who spent a helluva lot of time running all the BSDs, including NetBSD, I have to totally agree. I have to salute Charles for having the balls to post that on the list, and if needed, I will be happy to donate for the purchase of one flame retardant suit =)

I, too, am sorry to hear about this. I must confess that I did not forsee this situation. Though I recognize, now, that the handwriting has been on the wall for some time.
