Quite good, I'm happy you want to use it.

The NetBSD website is the first and the best place to start looking for

At one time I was in the process of creating a fresh document but someone
with more NetBSD experience was also creating a similar document so I
stopped. But there any number of developers on this list with the ability
to help you when you encounter problems.

Sounds reasonable to me. I want one too!

Between the NetBSD manual, the porting guidelines,, and the
source code of a working port to use as an example there is plenty of
clearly written information available, it just needs to be corralled,
assimilated and refreshed.

As I said earlier I'm willing to spend 8 to 12 hours a week to help. So
perhaps that is where I'll start first.
