And that is, in detail:
- write an interrupt handler
- add bootinfo stuff to milo
- etc. etc. :-)

Yes. I still try to coordinate the uncoordinatable :-)

Yes, since there are many tiny little things to do that aren't
high on the priority list, but would be very helpful.

Certainly. At least, we would have something to discuss.

I would say, 20 or more people with access to at least one
Mips box are more than enough.

I'm not sure. There are many people on the list from whom I haven't
heard since more than half a year, or even longer. No offense! I just
believe that it is a question of motivation to make these people
doing useful work.
> Would such a list help make sure that things get done and

I certainly hope so. There are so many tiny little things that
would make my life easier and could be done by others. I just
think of the MACHGROUP stuff which could be easily added to
Milo. See above.

Are we on the plus side ? I guess so...
OK. I'll post that list real-soon-now. (TM) as Ralf would write :-)
