Package: uboot-envtools
Version: 20081215-2
Severity: wishlist

        Hi folks!

 I've been helping a bit on the u-boot package which was put together by
 Clint; it's built from the upstream u-boot tree, using released
 tarballs and is quite up-to-date.

 The "mkimage" tool to manipulate u-boot images used to be provided by a
 forked source in Debian in the uboot-mkimage package, but this is now
 built from u-boot proper.

 I'd like to offer to do the same thing for uboot-envtools.  I checked
 the tree, and the souce seems pretty much identical to upstream u-boot
 71edc271816ec82cf0550dd6980be2da3cc2ad9e from Mon Oct 13 14:12:55 2008.

 There are a couple of patches to help the build, the Makefile stuff is
 just useful to build out of tree and then there's an old crc32.c change
 which seems correct, but doesn't appear to be needed to build u-boot
 any idea whether that's still relevant?

 The packaging would of course have to be merged; the
 uboot-envtools-examples/ notably, and the README.Debian snippet, but
 also the man pages which I'd hope to upstream.

 What do you folks think?
