Erik is buried in a huge project for his work.  While I do run a
small consulting business doing embedded Linux stuff, mainly for
the fun and diversion it affords me, my main job is doing
computer forensics work, which has at best only a peripheral
relationship with embedded Linux.  With my main job taking up
most of my time, between work and family (I'm happily married
with 4 young kids) I have had almost no surplus time for my usual
leisure time work on uClibc, buildroot, for the past few months.
I remain hundreds of emails behind most of the time of late...
Sortof sucks, but that is the way it is.

=> Looks like the personal
   project is as large!

If you would like to obtain svn commit privs I would be happy to
get you setup, at which point you would be able to get your board
support work in place on your own.  I agree with having it
included in buildroot but I do not presently have the personal
bandwidth to shepherd it into place and it seems noone else has
done so either.  Sorry I've been so busy/absent/negligent,

=> Everyone contributes for
    the fun of it and I guess
    you really do not "owe"
    people any time.

    I feel honured by your 
    proposal. - Thank You!

    I would really appreciate 
    to be able to get my 
     stuff into Buildroot.
    Have accumulated quite 
    a collection of patches
    by now.

    Will try to focus on three things.

    * Support for building
      multiple boards (BSP)
    * AVR32 Toolchain.
    * Atmel Dev Kit support.

     Also have a number of 
     for the packages directory 
     as well but I think I want
     them discussed before   

     Last thing is that I would
     like to have a target/linux
     directory allowing you
     to select easily kernel
     version using menuconfig.
