About NetBSD/hppa

NetBSD/hppa is the port of NetBSD to the Hewlett-Packard 9000 Series 700 workstations, which are based on HP's Precision Architecture RISC (PA-RISC) CPUs. These machines superseded the HP 9000 Series 300 and 400 workstations, which are supported by NetBSD as NetBSD/hp300.

Nick Hudson is the maintainer of NetBSD/hppa.

The hp700 port of NetBSD was started by Matt Fredette in October 2001. He started working with Michael Shalayeff's OpenBSD/hppa sources at that time, and after much work had it booting multiuser in March of 2002. At that time he began merging the port into the NetBSD tree.

The port was renamed NetBSD/hppa for the 7.0 release.
