I personnaly use BitKeeper to maintain my trees. I can't provide write
access to them because I don't administrate the server they are on,
To write, you would need a ssh account and I juste have one for me and
can't create others.

I try to publish what I'm doing in www.246tNt.com/mpc52xx/state.txt

Based on old bestcomm or new ?

>And CAN, RTC, and possible CRC32/16 (if it will fast enough) :).
CAN is not on my personnal project list since I have nothing that uses
so I couldn't test it anyway.

RTC ? The MPC5200 can't save time AFAIK. And Linux should already
'count' time correctly I think.

By CRC32/16 I guess you mean to use the BestComm DMA engine to implement
the kernel CRC Library ? I'm not sure

I've pushed PCI on my tree ( bk://bkbits.246tNt.com/linux-2.5-mpc52xx )
yesterday night. So if you're in position to test it please report ;)
