Hi there. I didn't really get any response on this, so I
thought I'd ask again. Is there any work actively ongoing for
sparc64 SMP support for either -current, or NetBSD 3?
I have a quad proc machine that I'd love to have running
MP without having to load Solaris 10 on it.

On a related but separate note, there used to be a web site

Does this still exist? Does anyone remember what/where it is/
