What hardware (processor and system) will you be using?
What SCI hardware will you be using?  Dolphin? Custom?

Try to keep  the design somewhat generic.  SCI was one of the technologies 
with a big influence on both RapidIO and Infiniband.  Infiniband will mostly 
be deployed in clusters of general purpose machines, but RapidIO will be big 
in telecom hardware, which could see some intereste in RTEMS.

Snapshots have bug fixes and new features compared to the release, but may 
not be as stable.
