I wish you wouldn't. The FreeBSD version of the tree includes
politically motivated changes that are inaccurate as to the actual
history involved (they seem to have snuck into our version some time
The actual fact of the matter is that there should be a line from
NetBSD 0.8 to FreeBSD 1.0; the patchkit maintainers, who created
FreeBSD, were provided with a prerelease snapshot of NetBSD and
incorporated changes from it into their own working tree.
