To be honest, the ELDK is maintained by our company.  It has become too
much for a single individual.

We of course invite others from the community to get involved
here. There is a mailinglist[1] to discuss ELDK related topics and all
sources needed to build it are available from our git server[2].

One of the inconveniences preventing likely many attempts to get
involved is our old build system, which ensures excellent distribution
compatibility however.

So one of the first goals I try to invest spare time is to fix the build
process into being runnable on modern distros also.  We just cannot drop
support for the old build environment to be as widely compatible as
