If you are into 386BSD there is also
https://github.com/386bsd/386bsd

It has sources for the pre Net/2 release. This was
originally a floppy sized set of patches against BSD.

386BSD 1.0 sources. The full distribution was
released as CD-ROM together with a lot of
documentation. I dumped it at
https://github.com/dugoh/386bsdcd if you care
to boot it up.

386BSD 2.0 sources, I think this was released
as an update disk originally and put online
this summer by the Jolitzes.

Warning on 1.0 and 2.0, the copyright notice is
not compatible with BSD.

I had a lot of fun running 0.1 with patch kits.

An attempt to automate that guide with the help of
Travis stranded due to maximum build times, but
Moore will catch up one day.
