individual mdwn files.  I did this by using a custom xslt file and some
manual cleanups on the files.

Most of these projects are still misclassified as they do not list the
correct difficulty or the category they list is not yet defined in the

duration="1-2 months"

Due to the multitude of supported machine architectures NetBSD has to deal with
many different partitioning schemes.  To deal with them in a uniform way
(without imposing artificial restrictions that are not enforced by the
underlying firmware or bootloader partitioning scheme) wedges have been
