	Just got this email from a friend...

	----- Forwarded message from David Blackman -----

	Just had a quick look at [Warren's Unix family tree diagram]
	You list Research V8 as successor to V7, which is true i guess, but
	i've seen several sources say most of the kernel was derived from a BSD
	version, probably 4.1.

	----- End of forwarded message from David Blackman -----

	Can anybody confirm or deny this? I suppose I should ask Dennis.


There was a big infusion of 4.1BSD into the research group system
between V7 and V8. Dennis could give you more details.
