From what I've seen of the source, openbsd has no problem giving credit.
Most of the files that were originally ripped from netbsd still have the
old netbsd CVS tags at the top of them, for crying out loud.
On top of that, most of the new things that openbsd has created, like pf,
are copyrighted to the original author (way to go Daniel Hartmeier) and
not "the openbsd project" or whatever.
There is always "raucus" when there are forks. You think it was all quiet
on the western front when openbsd was formed?
