about="""
NetBSD/acorn32 is a port to ARM- and StrongARM-powered Acorn RiscPC compatible
machines and is maintained by Reinoud Zandijk
[(<reinoud>)](mailto:reinoud@NetBSD.org).  The first formal release of
NetBSD/acorn32 is 1.6. In earlier releases of NetBSD, these machines are
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.

###People

Core processor support was written by Mark Brinicombe (most of it) and Neil
Carson (some of libkern and pmap, floating point emulators and libraries).

Support for Acorn platforms was written by Mark Brinicombe (most of it) with
help from Scott Stevens (various device drivers), Melvin Tang Richardson (VIDC
console), Mike Pumford (EtherH driver) and Andrew McMurry (Acorn FileCore filing
system).

###Ongoing Work

We invite you to examine the
[summary of current NetBSD/acorn32 problem reports](http://www.netbsd.org/Gnats/category/port-acorn32.html).
