I´d say we should follow the 2 planned ways for the FireBee:
1.) The "command line addon" to Jo Evens FreeMiNT setup. There were always plans to deliver it one day. Now there is some work going on in this direction. It can be for the "lightweight Unix user" or motivated developer.
2.) Support Marc-Anton Kehr with the new EasyMiNT for the full blown stuff. That means all the stuff has to be availaible as rpm packages again, and Maanke could go on.
So with that 3 setups, the GEM FreeMiNT setup, "command line/development addon" and "Full EasyMiNT" all needs should be covered. And for sounding a little bit more nice than the last weeks about this issue: remember that this was always planned, and that I really always tried to get a new EasyMiNT for example. Now there is the chance, and it should be taken! Not that I do not appreciate further activities like ColdMiNT, Gentoo or that stuff, but I belive - like always - we should joint forces and collaborate a little bit more.
