So are you useing your own repository to track your development? It sure
doesn't seem like the 2_4_devel tree is a development tree anymore. And
seeing how hard it has become to get changes into the "devel" tree also
suggests that the tree is not really a development tree.

Any particular reason you are keeping things "close to your chest"? I know
it is nice to be able to go through and makes changes where ever you
like without having to be confronted with them every checkin/merge, but
since there are change that will at least change the file structure of
other boards it seems like it should be kept more in the open.
