There is an RFD that was recently mailed to one of the netbsd mailing
lists (I don't recall which one--haven't had time to really look at it).
It was a request for creation of a 4th layer to comp.unix.bsd that would
have room for netbsd, freebsd, 386bsd, bsdi and maybe something else.

The plan was that the comp.os.386bsd.* traffic would migrate over to the
new groups and then the old groups would be retired.
