NetBSD 6.1_RC3 is not on

nor on the NetBSD blog, so I was guessing that it was deemed not ready.

NetBSD has an awful hard time on my Intel Sandy Bridge system, in contrast to 
FreeBSD, so I thought I might wait, maybe try HEAD.

I have netbsd-5, netbsd-6 and netbsd-HEAD for both i386 and amd64 installed on 
separate USB sticks.

netbsd-5 is on 5.2 now, and i don't intend to keep going as much with netbsd-5 
as with 6 and HEAD.

FreeBSD and Linux figure to take much time away from NetBSD with me.

Update: I see on that they are now on NetBSD 6.1_RC4, so far 
15 successful builds including amd64, one failure (alpha); i386 hasn't been 
reached yet.

Maybe 6.1_RC3 wasn't "released", recalling the debate over whether NetBSD 5.1.1 
was ever "released".
