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."

That wouldn't be in OpenBSDs interest. Many of NetBSDs problems that are mentioned by Chalres Hannum has already been solved by the OpenBSD project. They have strong leadership and get things done, why would they want to regress?

That said, I'm sure feed-up NetBSD hackers could find a "safe haven" in other BSD projects such as OpenBSD, FreeBSD or DragonFly BSD.

Of course, getting the NetBSD project back on track would be the ideal solution, but poor managment seldom tends to be jousted out without bringing down everyone and everything with it.

For the Amigians out there - it looks like NetBSD is doing a "Commodore"...

Just what I was thinking. Or maybe an XFree86.
