A couple other things come to mind:
1. I have integrated in the ATF unittests from NetBSD and they're
working on my branch; they'll need to be updated to pull those
2. It might be a good idea to add an UPDATING entry.
3. It might be a good idea to add more files to prune to
contrib/atf/FREEBSD-Xlist so svn checkouts are smaller.
4. It might be a good idea to update to 0.18 before doing this work
(or in parallel). I did that weeks ago on my git branch, and it's
checked into master: .
