Chris and I chatted and the hold up is capturing the written
instructions so this
is repeatable.  The move to git changed the process and he had specific
on wanting to do this. I don't know if he got started on this over the
weekend or

I will make some notes today and chat with him when he wakes up. Then
we can see where the check list stands.

On a positive note, one of my sons had his college graduate yesterday so
something of merit was accomplished. :)

I have a set of clean up ideas in mind I want to propose to deal with
cruft that
has built up trying to be compatible with old versions of newlib, remove
ports and BSPs, remove the code marked deprecated, remove some conditionally
compiled alternatives that are not obvious to enable and probably never
That doesn't include some packaging rework I want to discuss.
