That suggestion got me looking at "The Unix History Graphing Project" at

Is there a readable (meaning "not source code") history of *.*BSD
on the McCusick CD set?  Most of the comment-type entries in the
Unix History Graphing Project for the BSD releases are pretty good,
but not real complete.

Do any of the Ultrix versions show up somewhere in the The Unix History
Graphing project?  I know that they're offshoots from 2BSD and 4BSD, but
I wouldn't mind seeing someone annotate when they shot off and what
was changed/added/deleted.  (Did I just volunteer?!?)

Another history question: Anyone know if there's any 2.9BSD-Seismo
distributions kicking around?
