Hi Paul

I have various boards based on 8xx that I want to get them in  but I can't
because they depend on some patches that I was told should wait for 2.6.

However I don't think that 2.6 works for 8xx at all.

What is the status of 2.6 for 8xx?

Does someone intent to do it, or should I try to give it a shot?
