Author: imp
Date: Fri Jun 26 07:11:14 2009
New Revision: 195044

  Correct some minor nits with the 2BSD and 3BSD series of releases
  based on the information at The Unix Historical Society web page
  (  Where multiple sources differ,
  retain all data.  Prefer 2.79BSD to 2.7.9BSD, since the former is from
  /LABEL form the actual release.  Use the /LABEL date as in the TUHS
  tables (the curious can read
  for all the conflicting date confusion if they want).
