really interested in, while FreeBSD does.
It might be reasonable to just work on both, and see what happens. I expect

Somebody volunteered to be project coordinator, who was it?
As well as I understand it, the following goals are more or less settled:
Kernel is NetBSD.
Native file system is UFS; others later "if somebody does the work".
Boot loader is BSD's, initially; maybe Grub later "if ...".
Libc is NetBSD's unless/until somebody ports GNU libc; then maybe both.

Installer is custom.
Remaining packages are from the Debian source archives, patched as needed.
