Greg Woods, der Mouse and you should make a club. You guys obviously
have a conspiracy theory going on. You're NetBSD's Lone Gunmen.
Had you read the original report, you'd have seen that the reporter
installed a 5.0 system using a 4.0.1 installation CD.
So now, please stop complaining about all the great evils you imagine
NetBSD developers are up to. It's getting harder to care about people
like you because there is little gratification in doing so, and at some
point it harms moving forward.
