I'm traveling this week, so didn't make any specific plans to host the
VFAD earlier today. Sorry for not announcing that. Of course, there's no
reason to not build and contribute bits by joining us on #fedora-arm at
any time, and by following the instructions:
Good progress has been made recently. Dennis has succeeded in making a
minimal rootfs using the packages built so far, and it even boots :) I
don't think it will be too long before we can get a useful buildroot.
Unless it proves redundant due to insanely cool rate of progress, there
will be another VFAD next week. We may (hopefully) soon be able to
transition over to just a standard package building exercise, once we've
got the standard Koji infrastructure up and running.

So I'm traveling to a friend's wedding and missed the context, but FYI I
am running David Marlin's kernel mostly for good test coverage. I will
be building up a new kernel of my own to debug a network driver problem
I am tracking down that is also biting DJ (I can confirm with a
Flyswatter that it is the network IRQ where we wind up hanging).
Let me know if you need anything, but email might be easier this side of
Thursday due to the traveling.
Many GNU/Linux distributions are doing some ARM porting; this tends to
result in work duplication, and there doesn't seem to be a general
purpose forum to bring ARM porters together.
We're inviting developers of GNU/Linux distributions with an interest
in ARM to join a new "cross-distro" list, hosted at Linaro:
Any ARM Linux / Free Software discussion is welcome on the list, for
instance porting software to build on ARM, toolchain problems, dealing
with new ABIs, Thumb-2, NEON, kernel problems, announcement of new
