I'm working on one. So far, I've broken it up into the following major
introduction - guess ;-)
BSD - talking about Net/2 and 4.4-lite aspects (ie, it is real BSD)
ports - arch. that we are ported to, w/ pointers to port info and
news - resources on the net (news, FAQ, WWW, ftp, etc)
pointers - references to similar topics
current - info about NetBSD-current (w/ vague + nebulous icon) ;-)
Also, come January, my machine will be directly connected via ethernet so I
will have the resources to put the entire uncompressed source tree on the
net as well - a la "minnie".
I was also thinking of a way to have examples of sites/configurations that
demonstrate the stability and value of NetBSD.
If you or anyone else would like to help, I'd live to have partners in
this... ;-) And criticism in a while, especially about my funky blue,
yellow, and red icons. :)
Currently, I'm doing the work on my local machine, but now that there's
others interested, I'll put it on an internet server. I'll tar it up and
put it on http://purcell.ecn.purdue.edu/~willey by Saturday evening.
For those of you that can't wait, there's a pretty crude 'free unix' info
page on the abovementioned server. It's probably horribly outdated, but
then, I just made it for my own use mostly. The working URLs from that one
are also referenced in one way or another on my NetBSD-specific page.
