Hi Linuxers!

I am just mailing to remind you that there still exists this TODO-file.
If you have ported anything lately or can help me fill the questinable
things, please mail me.

Following at the end of the file is the latest release of TODO.

But before you start dropping this into the trashbin: 
All FTP-Site-maintainers with Linux-specific stuff, please read at the end
of the mail!!

=============== Following is TODO =======================
This files contains the status of several tools for Linux

Currently ported projects:

Name:		ported by:				available at
bison		nicholas@cs.uwa.oz.au			tupac-amaru
							nic.funet.fi

flex		??					tupac-amaru
							nic.funet.fi

diff		??					tupac-amaru
							nic.funet.fi

kermit		??					tupac-amaru
							nic.funet.fi

===============================================================================
Projects currently under development:

Name:		ported by:				Remarks
c386		blum@messua.informatik.rwth-aachen.de	Is working under Linux
							A cc for this exists
							Is currently teached 
							ANSI. Any help on this
							would be appreciated. 

gawk		nicholas@cs.uwa.oz.au			Still needs a working
							mathlib.

VFS		proven@athena.mit.edu			VFS=Virtual File System
							Will probably out with
							Linux 0.11

Networking	jtkohl@echidna.berkeley.edu		Mainly the BSD code
							Perhaps even ffs
=================End of TODO=======================

Now the stuff for you site admins out there:

What do you think of a kind of mailing list for new sources/binaries?
E.G:
You get the new kernel code. Instead of installing it directly, you post
it to the mailing list, and it will be automatically installed on all FTP
sites that have joined the mailing list, including yours.

So we could keep the whole archives consistent and thus spread the load.
Currently, the host who has it first will have the heaviest load. 
(But wait, funet.fi is the one to have it first... I think we shouldn't 
 do the list :-)

You might even offer the linux community to join this list read-only, so
everybody who wants to, always finds the newest binaries in his mailbox.
Of course, this depends on 
a) if you have to pay for mail
b) how much you have to pay

What do you think about this? Do you like the idea?

Please send in any replies/thoughts you have concerning this

OK, and thank you for listening
  Robert Blum

Hi Linuxers!
This is my weekly post (just to remind you that it exists, I get almost
no feedback :-() of the TODO list, which is also available on tupac-amaru
So if you have any additions to it please mail me.

I hope in one or two weeks, there will also be a first FAQ. Again, if you
have any ideas what should belong into it, please mail.

BTW: Has anyone succesfully crosscompiled Linux under another OS? 
I tried it with DJGPP under DOS, and I can't get it running. *ANY* help with
it would be appreciated.

C U l8er,
  Robert Blum

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State
