Appendix A. Information

A.1. Guide history

This guide was born as a collection of sparse notes that I wrote mostly for myself. When I realized that they could be useful to other NetBSD users I started collecting them and created the first version of the guide using the groff formatter. In order to "easily" get a wider variety of output formats (eg. HTML), I made the "mistake" of moving to SGML/DocBook, which is the current format of the sources.

The following open source tools were used to write and format the guide:

Many thanks to all the people involved in the development of these great tools.
