OSNews, Generic OSes "Plan 9 has been forked to start a development out of the Bell Labs (or whatever they are called these days...). This true community-approach allows further development of Plan 9, even if the shrinking resources at Bell-Labs for Plan 9 are vanishing. The homepage and the code can be both found at Google code. You can boot 9front from the regulary built live cd or build the binaries in your existing Plan 9 installation. Installation instructions and further information can be obtained at the 9front wiki."

what the crap is this... I thought the current plan9 development was heading for the upcoming release of osprey?

Looks to me like its not a fork to follow... plan9 is an engineered opereating system that was designed methodically I don't see how this fork will maintain that mindeset if it does great but it doesn't look like it will.

Is there a link (or even a mailing list archive or newsgroup) where one can read about this?
