I apologize for this off-the-subject question, but I thought there might be
some folks here who would be interested in this.  

There is a new project starting up called SolarMoon.  It is a VMS-like 
operating system for i386-type computers.  This project is just starting so 
there are _a_lot_ of challenges ahead, but it should be fun.  If you are at 
all interested please contact SolarMoon @ - he's coordinating 
the project.  If you are interested in helping with testing contact me (jerome

I don't know how this will turn out or if it will even go anywhere at all,
but I was intrigued by the idea.  Apparently someone who worked on VMS at 
Digital (since version 1.0) has shown some interest in helping out with the
development.  I've been asked to coordinate testing efforts.  An e-mail 
distribution list will soon be set up, along with a web page.

Please respond by e-mail for the sake of the rest of the NetBSD/vax folks.
