Good, then I'll fast-forward them there.

In fact my current plan is to move away from m68k bootinfo (which APUS
borrows so you can use the same bootloader) towards a flattened dev tree
passed in from the bootloader. For that, however, we need a new
bootloader first, which is dependant on AmigaOS binutils/gcc.

So I guess it will be ARCH=ppc until the new bootloader is ready.

Should APUS still get a special treatment then, or should I try to
emulate enough of OF in the bootloader so it is possible to build CHRP
images that work on APUS?
