I'm back from my Euro-american jaunt and have received some good
news re the DECStations from Jon "maddog" Hall at DEC:
> From: "Jon 'maddog' Hall, USG Senior Leader" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
> I have sent a message to the Vice President in charge of workstations
> outlining the need for documentation, and asking him to both point me to
> the engineers in charge of this information, and to authorize them to
> release any and all hardware information to you.
> In the meantime, you might also look at the code for netBSD. netBSD
> works on a variety of DECstation platforms, and you might be able to
> glean drivers, bootcode, etc. from them.
> I will let you know when I hear from the VP. If you don't hear from me
> by next Tuesday, ping me again.
