He benchmarked NetBSD-current yesterday.
Some benchmarks declined a bit, but the last and IMHO most important
'http-request-latency' benchmark comes close to Linux/FreeBSD.
(1.6/poll vs. 2.0/kqueue)
And he encountered a problem during the update:
"The upgrade build process did not run smoothly, the NetBSD crowd will
have to review that (e.g. I got a /usr/src/usr.bin/kqueue/kqueue/
directory from CVS, which the make clean run in build.sh tried to rm -f
(without -r), and that caused the whole build to abort)."
He didn't wrote when he checked-out the source, but it must be between
19. and 20. Oct.
