The Linux-mips project is much older than sourceforge and looking at the
history of hyped venture capital companys does not really give a good
feeling about using sourceforge. Personally spoken i dont like
sourceforge - For most cases its just too bloated and working for ISPs
its not a problem to get some public accesible ftp/web/cvs space.

Yep - The Debian autobuilder run native on little and big endian.

Some rumors about Indy/Indigo2 HAL support have been heard.
The problem with some sourceforge trees and thesplit up information is
that like you already experienced is a real problem for Linux-mips
as there is no "source of the only wisdom". I dont like that
tree-forking etc. Either build your stuff clean - ready for inclusion -
or just drop the tree under the table as a big bad ugly hack.
