Subject Re: Anyone work on the MIPS machines?
Date Tue, 10 Nov 2009 05:02:40 GMT
Chris basically stated where we are...

I am going to try and just send a big diff pretty soon, so you can
"see" it - but, part of the delivery is breaking down the patches into
consumable pieces on the mailing list...

Unfortunately, we have been doing this for an R&D project and this is
not our main deliverable - so, apologize for not getting this out
sooner - but, we have to pay the bills with the other work...

Please hold us to getting some patches out by start of next week, if
you don't here for me or Chris on this list - then feel free to fire
off some emails...
