The eBones distribution which was imported had been hacked into a NetBSD
source-tree like framework, and had had some bugs fixed, by someone in
Norway. I can't remember who. But I wanted to make it clear that
we did *not* start with the KTH eBones distribution, and the one I did
start with, though available on a public ftp server, did not appear to
have any official name. So I made one up.
That person was originally going to work on maintaining an European
distribution in parallel to our /usr/src/domestic Kerberos; that's
one reason I used his code instead of reworking the KTH code myself.
Unfortunately for various reasons that never happened.
