In keeping with NetBSD's policy of maintaining only the current (3.x) and
most recent (2.x) release branches, the release of NetBSD 3.0 marks the=20
end-of-life for NetBSD 1.6. This means that the netbsd-1-6 branch will no=
longer be actively maintained.

For example:

- In contrast to earlier plans there will be no NetBSD 1.6.3 release.
  This plan was dropped due to incomplete cross build support in the
  "netbsd-1-6" branch and lack of man power.
- There will be no more pullups to the branch (even for security issues)
- There will be no security advisories made for 1.6
- The current 1.6 releases on will be moved into   =20

On behalf of the NetBSD Release Engineering team
