Hi, just noticed - somebody has un-netgraphed the FreeBSD bluetooth code 
and incorporated it into OpenBSD, anybody going to have a crack at pulling 
it in?

I'd just bought myself a bluetooth pc-card from ebay (the 3com one) and 
was going to see what I could do, but a) I'm not an especially quick 
developer and b) I'm not quite au fait with NetBSD internals, usb, pcmcia 
or bluetooth, just upgraded to NetBSD 2.0 and not likely to run -current 
(very slow net connection) so dont be holding your breath especially..

I'm willing to collaborate and/or test however and would hate to duplicate 
somebody elses work.  My personal aim is to do away with the serial cable 
between laptop and mobile phone and lose the silo overflows so I'm more 
interested in rfcomm side and pcmcia instead of USB.

I'm ever hopeful that somebody else will do all the hard work of course, 
please let me know if you are working on it..
