Default Openbsd for Raspberry pi3

Somebody got OpenBSD booting the Raspberry PI3 acording to : http://ix.io/oJV
Found on the FreeBSD mailing list : https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/...ch/013350.html
Topic: OpenBSD RPi3 dmesg and install prompt

Anybody know where to find the image?

You have two better choices than asking here, among users who are unlikely to have knowledge about developments outside of the commits to the Project source repositories, public Project mailing lists, or published articles in the OpenBSD Journal.

1. George Rosamond I have never met, but I have heard of. A founding member of the NYC*BUG user group, and a member of bsdcertification.org. Why don't you ask him? His Email address is in the mailing list link you posted.

2. The dmesg you and George both linked to has a userid and hostname of the person who built the kernel. Perhaps that's also a valid Email address? If so, you can ask the builder directly.

Understood.
(I thought also it was a cool find, if anybody else was interested. I will be more conservative regarding when to start a topic. This seems to be a great forum, thanks to people like you with willingness to answer so fast, and to the point/technically informed.

No worries, its just that the active members here are just users, and we don't typically have unpublished information. (The group includes one emeritus developer, who posts from time to time.)

A little further poking around tells me that the builder was Patrick Wildt, an OpenBSD developer (patrick@). It's fairly clear this is an uncommitted development. There is no broadcom(4) driver. Yet.

Problem with Broadcom's SoC in Raspberry is that it uses big closed source binary blobs.
You can read about them in Subject: "Raspberry Pi 2 Model B" on misc mailing list and one post within subject: "Re: looking for hardware recommendations, x86 or otherwise." dated 2012-01-29 23:32:21 by Theo de Raadt, also misc mailing list.

Yep, Pi could be a good alternative, but closed, so closed...

Anyway, the dmesg shows it's possible to boot the Pi, and then ?
The dmesg is awfully short, and I see ethernet isn't supported, so no way for me...
