Can you please translate this into English for me?

My question was: is bk://  base
on linuxppc_2_4 or linuxppc_2_4_devel, and which exact ChangeSet.

Why do you create a new tree ...-mgt5100 ? The MGT5100 can safely  be
considered  dead  (except that ther eare some systems out there which
remain being supported),.

Can you please explain the rationale behind  creating  a  new  source
tree?  There  is  the old bk://
tree, there is now Dave's new  linuxppc_2_4_mpc5200  tree.  There  is
linux-2.4, linux-2.5, linuxppc_2_4_devel, linuxppc-2.4, linuxppc-2.5.
There  is  a  couple  other, less official source trees (like Ben's).
There is our CVS tree.

And instead of reducing the confusion about all the different  kernel
source trees you created yet another one?? Why?
