Looks like an (OpenBSD) usability project rather than a (proper) OS
fork. Nothing of what they announce (freedialog/EINStein) is looking
like great efforts to me, though it might be good for OpenBSD to have
a non-GNU dialog.

If they don't do it really anticipatory to other *BSD's we won't gain
much from their work(IMO). If they, however, create a well designed
installer with schemes to describe the install, that'd be interesting
for sure.
