[*] Genesi and Freescale will be responsible for the Linux BSP. Please do not submit Projects which rely on the release of NetBSD, AROS or any other operating system being ported before you can start unless you're porting it!
Note that since the posting of Michal Schultz's Project
on the subject, you may submit projects which rely on an AROS port.
That is to say that we are giving Michal a little more support by allowing an initial port based on the Toshiba TMPA910 board (which has the Aura firmware), and hope Michal will be done before or pretty soon after other developers are prepped to receive their boards.
i.MX515 projects are therefore open for Linux and AROS developers, developers who want to port operating systems to the i.MX515 using the Aura firmware (the restriction on past experience still stands - Michal qualifies with flying colours), and developers who wish to engage in interesting hardware development projects (industrial control etc.) with the i.MX515 platform.
Many other project types will be considered, please do not be afraid to make a proposal, it is simply that we will follow these guidelines for project approvals and qualify your need for hardware and support based on whether it can actually be done or not (for instance, porting FreeNAS to i.MX515 requires FreeBSD, so we will not be approving projects that do not have or show significant progress in porting FreeBSD to the platform)
I hope that clears things up.
