you'll need to be more specific.

you'll need to reference archive.org to find the conversation.
tsvetan's disdain is very very clear. and he also, just as clearly,
doesn't actually answer the question.

i don't believe it (but i could be wrong - i often am). allwinner
hadn't actually released the source of the proprietary boot0
bootloader back then, and things were a total mess. i've yet to reply
but paul might actually be right about git.rhombus-tech.net because it
might contain (for example) libnand. i *think* on review of the code
i did go "i ain't frickin well putting *that* in the git repo" but
i'll have to double-check. it was a long time ago.
