Nope. Matt Thomas is doing that on his own time. NASA *has* sponsored
some NetBSD based work on storage systems -- their Numerical
Simulation Facility apparently needs filestores much bigger than any
commercial vendor can manage, and they've been using BSD boxes for
them.

This is really far afield of nanog, though.
