                      2: 
1.2       maxv        3: Over time, several kernel components were removed from NetBSD, often because
1.5       maxv        4: they were too hard to maintain, not always functional, and because the features
                      5: they implemented were not particularly wanted anymore.
1.2       maxv        6: 
                      7: This page provides a list of these removed components, with references to the
                      8: original code.
1.1       maxv        9: 
                     10: Only the features that were not superseded are listed.
                     11: 
1.7       maxv       12: Each component used to be maintained and functional, but over time became
                     13: broken because of lack of interest and inability to test changes, especially
                     14: on old hardware and ABIs. An estimation is provided of the NetBSD release
                     15: believed to have had the most functional version of each feature, before the
                     16: feature started deprecating. Note that this estimation may not be totally
                     17: accurate.
