we've extended the Blackfin dist quite a bit at some fundamental levels. ive
attempted to get those pushed back into the main one, but i guess David/Greg
dont agree with my approach to the work.
as for having sep development trees, that's a must given how the mainline
version works: an internal CVS tree that only opengear can see/access with
updates sent out in patch form at random internals. we require complete
visibility on our side so we have our own public server hosting the dist via
svn. it is completely up-to-date at all times with the developer and public
as for NIOS/Blackfin, i certainly dont have a problem if the NIOS guys want to
merge their work back with ours. we're certainly open to giving them commit
access and discuss general strategies. ive tried to keep from hardcoding
Blackfin-specific stuff in the Blackfin dist, but i wouldnt be surprised if i
failed in a place or three ...
