<t>Quote from jamesh on August 30, 2011, 20:37<br/> There isn't yet a clear yes or no on the FOSS status of the Linux side driver. It's my understanding (!) from what I have read and heard that no decision has yet been made by Da Management. I hope for them to be FOSS, but it's not my decision.<br/>...

<t>Quote from liz on August 30, 2011, 15:58<br/> Dude - Jamesh *is* one of the developers. Read around the board a bit more carefully next time.<br/> <br/> I never said he isn't a dev, I just gathered he isn't working on the Videocore driver directly because of him saying<br/> <br/> That is my under...

<t>Quote from liz on August 6, 2011, 23:50<br/> ARM JTAG will be brought out to pads. There will be full documentation of the non-multimedia peripherals (one of our developers has the documentation pretty much finished already). <br/> <br/> Sounds good. What about serial?<br/> <br/> I have visions o...
