Yeah completely off topic, did you notice the A64 documents marked confidential all disappeared?

Doesn't matter, in the beginning Pine64 wiki linked directly to the original leaked sources (Olimex' github repo, Tsvetan is pretty fast publishing confidental material all the time Wink ) and we've uploaded the stuff also in linux-sunxi wiki. And it should be noted that TL Lim was unlike other vendors we've to deal with in sunxi world absolutely cooperative and shared a few other bits of confidental information with us. Nothing to complain about Smile

And regarding the 'basic Linux foundation' longsleep did a really great job building a 'framework' that provides OS distro independant an easy way to upgrade kernel and u-boot and 'fix whatever' that is already known. He also eased the creation of other OS images drastically (not that good in my eyes since I think for the whole Pine64 community at the current state less OS images are way better than more) and especially compared with some other vendors with full time paid developers the situation with Pine64 is far more superiour. Only real concern: That the hard work done didn't reached users as long as the featured OS images were only outdated and crappy ones. Fortunately that has changed. Now documentation still has to be improved a lot.

But things will change, we will soon see first OS images based on mainline u-boot/kernel and then the fun begins (for some guys but most likely not the average Pine64 backer who expects full Linux support already, does not even know that all this stuff has been done by the linux-sunxi guys in their spare time and thinks the fact that the only person dealing with the crappy 3.10 BSP kernel so far decided to stop when HDMI @ 1080p60 worked would be a bug worth filing a report)
I got all the docs saved Wink
If you like my work be sure to check out my site or wish to donate to the cause
