With all these forks, spoons, knives, patches, snapshots, photos, branches, trees, limbs, etc, etc, it sure would be nice if someone would come up with an app note which, at the very least, provides references on how to understand all these concepts.  Ideally, it would describe how to maintain your development environment in detail.  Especially considering the various downloadable versions of 4.5 on the web site (i.e. the actual 4.5.0 link, the CD-Working version, etc, etc).  

While the RTEMS documentation is pretty clear on the installation process from a given distribution (except where you are given untar instructions to uncompress a .bz2 file :) ), I am certainly lost on how all this other stuff.  Maybe a case of trying to learn RTEMS at the same time as trying to learn Linux!

For what it is worth .......

That hasn't been done by OAR yet.  At this point around here, it would
take doing a fresh install on a machine.  Even my laptop is polluted
in this sense.

Any feedback on this before we get to it would be definitely valuable.
