Hi all,

I'm back on the list after a several month hiatus. Things have settled down a 
bit at the new job and I should have some more free time in the upcoming 
months. So, more time to for l4hurd. Yay!

I just read through the archives to catch up. It sounds like NealW did some 
work over the summer at Karlsruhe. Have the licensing issues been worked out 
with that yet? Is there a summary somewhere of what was done and what needs 

Also, I saw the proposal for the IRQ work. Has anything come of that yet? When 
I left off, I was thinking/working on implementing the device framwork 
described in Helmuth's paper. It was slow going, because I was spending a lot 
of time trying to translate the paper from German to English (I don't know a 
lick of German, but babelfish can do wonders if you are VERY patient and plod 
along carefully.) I'm about 2/3 of the way through it. If anyone could finish 
for me, I'd be delighted. I can send you what I have so far.

I got to the point where I was trying to figure out how to get started from 
the ground with the IRQ layer so that I could port over some of the OSKIT 
drivers and have something to look at, trying to use CHACMOS for inspiration 
here, and wresting with the various IDL compilers available. I need to check 
into the updates in that realm. Things have surely progressed there. Has 
anyone made progress on some IRQ stuff?

Anyhow, what have others been doing on l4hurd? I'm anxious to catch up and 
pick up where we left off.
