SoC 2007's mid-term evaluation is around the corner. I have to present some code on June 9th. In fact, it'd be already public if we used a decent VCS instead of CVS, but for now I'll keep the sources in a local monotone database. We'll see how they'll be made public later on.

Summarizing what has been done so far: I've already got a working prototype of the atf core functionality. I have to confess that the code is still very ugly (and with that I mean you really don't want to see it!) and that it is incomplete in many areas, but it is good enough as a "proof of concept" and a base for further incremental improvement.

What it currently allows me to do is:
What I'm planning to do now, before the mid-term evaluation deadline, is to integrate the current code into the NetBSD's build tree (not talking about adding it to the official CVS yet though) to show how all these ideas are applicable to NetBSD testing, and to ensure everything can work with build.sh and cross-compilation.

Once this is done, which shouldn't take very long I hope, I will start polishing the current atf's core implementation. This means rewriting several parts of the code (in special to make it more error-safe), adding more tests, adding manual pages for the tools and the interfaces, etc. This is something I'm willing to do, even though it'll be a hard and long job.
