Hi Lee and all,

We are using the latest Aeroflex-Gaisler RTEMS too on the Solar Orbiter EUI
instrument and will keep open the option of an upgrade/patch or two during
development if necessary.  It will be interesting to see what the other
instruments choose.

We like 4.10 or later for the same reasons expressed by others: bugfixes,
features and support together with better testing.  RFS too.

Rolf, what bug-fixes did you find necessary? Are they just selected official
patches from 4.10 to latest?
