NetBSD at GitHub

Official

NetBSD developers maintain GitHub presence at https://GitHub.com/NetBSD:

GitHub NetBSD org membership

Anyone with a NetBSD.org account is eligible for an invitation to our organisation on GitHub; email your NetBSD.org and GitHub.com login names to cnst@ and/or joerg@. Once an invitation is furnished by GitHub, it must be accepted by the recipient. In order to publicly show your affiliation with the NetBSD organisation on GitHub, you must also toggle the organisation visibility setting from Private to Public (this membership setting affects public visibility both on your own public profile page as well as within the public https://GitHub.com/orgs/NetBSD/people page; the default is Private, and it cannot be toggled to Public by the owners of the org).
