The Linux 2.3 tree will be opened up today for the general public.
The PCI code compiles but has not yet been tested. Extra work will need to be done to support PAT PDC, and Grant will look into this.
David will get the Tulip driver working.
Martin volunteered to take care of the serial driver problems we are experiencing
John & Philipp will work on the TLB miss handlers which are currently limiting development in a couple of areas.
Matthew will work on the proper syscall code.
Philipp has the fork() code working, and will next examine exec().
Scott volunteered to take care of writing TCP and UDP checksumming routines in PA-RISC assembler.
Matthew will arrange for a suitable `ifconfig' binary to be available for the purposes of testing the network driver.
Michael will work on implementing more HPUX syscalls in Linux to allow Apache to work.
David volunteered to set up a random config test system.
Matthew will remove some config options which are known to not work (and are unlikely to work in the near future).
Grant is currently building a 712 system for Sammy who will be transferring his energies from the sun3 port.
Frank Rowand is leaving HP. He has a couple of loan machines and may continue to contribute to the port if he has spare time. Paul volunteered to liase with Frank to look at the kernel debugger code that Frank had written.
We discussed a possible puffinfest in Fort Collins, and agreed to it in principle, but not before Feb 1st.
