"The really cool thing is that in all the time we've been active, _I_ personally have never received a request for any U-Boot source code, ever. Neither has Hans-Jörg. So, there's no real interest in getting it, it seems."
I think the main reason to request the code would be to keep an archive of Amiga stuff to help in reconstruction if you and Eyetech leave the market (as all owners of the Amiga have so far).
Every time I've had a curiosity, I've had to look at the archaic? version on sourceforge... while, of course, I have no 'right' to the source, not having managed to purchase the hardware that entitles me to receipt of the binary just yet. ;)
It would be a good idea to have it hosted, though, simply because it avoids making things harder on yourselves, and would actually allow whatever small chance there is of reaping the *benefits* of open-source.
For instance, how much noise will there now be if I ask "Is any sort of 686B patch present in this version, or is that all being handled in software?" Much easier, and more in keeping with the "spirit," if everyone can just grep on his own. (Open-source firmware *is* a selling point for the hardware, right? Why Genesi it up?)
