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."

Strange that you should mention THEOlogies since that is probably exactly what would cause a problem trying to put those back together. ;) OpenBSD came about because of some things occuring with netBSD and Theo was a guy that was asked to leave core and he started openBSD AFAIK and only IIRC. ;)

I doubt a merge would be realistic. Theo forked OpenBSD more then 10 years ago. Furthermore, OpenBSD and NetBSD seem to have different aims/philosophies, which would mean that would have grow apart over the years.
