More or less. Improving the abstraction layer is a continued focus
of development efforts.

linuxppc_2_4_devel is the only sane place to develop new board ports.
See the thread, "PPC bk repos reorg" in the linuxppc-commit archives
for information on getting a copy of the tree.  Go to bitkeeper.com
to get a copy of BK for your system.

No. Subscribe to the linuxppc-commit list and read the back archives
to see discussion of how we do things.

Read the source and follow one of the many examples (K2, Spruce, etc.)
