My time is very limited as well. I hope that this changes sometime in March.

I'd say we first try to get the Alix.1C Geode LX working perfectly in v3
to better understand all issues in v3 hardware bringup. With luck, that
will happen this weekend.
Then I hope porting most Geode LX targets will be easy and give us a
better feeling of what should be done in mainboard specific code vs.
processor/chipset specific code.
After that, porting K8 code would be the obvious next step, although I
hope we can clean up the code a lot before moving it to v3.

My goal for the next 6 months is to obsolete all v2 Geode LX targets by
supporting them in v3. That and the easier porting should move enough
development resources to v3 for it to gain strong momentum and quite a
bit of media coverage.
