I haven't used it, just seen it on /. like yourself. That's be wesome if you'd do a writeup. Thanks Darth! :)

Truly I agree with the reponses on deadly, I don't see why he just didn't OBSD+patches, now he's gonna copy all the OBSD patches as well and always be behind, he said he did it for a hobby but, eh, I say patches are a better hobby :)

But still good luck! :) Although I don't think he's add any code to it yet...

I don't see why he just didn't OBSD+patches

That's what i thought too, even stated it on deadly, but i found tedu's response to be very lucid:

everytime somebody releases a patch (ipf, stephanie, ...) people show up on misc@ saying it doesn't work. he's trying to be helpful by differentiating products. i don't know how he can prove to your satisfaction that people won't show up on misc@, but at least he can try.

with patches, people ask "why doesn't openbsd work with this patch?" if it's not a patch, but a renamed project, i think it drives home the point. people will realize "why doesn't ekkobsd work?" is not an appropriate question for misc@.
