About NetBSD/acorn32

NetBSD/acorn32 is a port to ARM- and StrongARM-powered Acorn RiscPC compatible machines and is maintained by Reinoud Zandijk (reinoud). The first formal release of NetBSD/acorn32 was 1.6. In earlier releases of NetBSD, these machines were supported by NetBSD/arm32.

The port first saw light as RiscBSD in 1994 and was later transformed into NetBSD/arm32. In 2001, the arm32 port was split into separate ports for the various supported hardware types. NetBSD/acorn32 was one of these.
