We are in the midway. We started with the main uClinux-dist, and pulled 
in Blackfin's bit by bit. We couldn't merge back to main tree, either. 
We might have to restart with blackfin's tree to merge.

I see that someof blackfin's repositories has both svn and git. Will 
blackfin's uClinux-dist repo have git, in addition to svn ?

No. The nios community is not strong enough to work out the new 
toolchains. (Remember that I was a newbie three years ago?)

After years of sleep, Altera woke up and moved a bit forwards. Now they 
works with both the community and commercial vendors to offer Linux 
solutions. They paid for the new gcc4.1 toolchain and vmlinux. They have 
engineers in house to write Linux/u-boot drivers. They are getting ready 
to support Linux. Slow but steadily.
