[OpenBIOS] ANNOUNCE: Collecting OpenBIOS patches

I've been on this mailing list for about a year, and very little
movement has occurred during that time.
Since there is still interest in this project, I would like to start
collecting patches against OpenBIOS 0.0.2-pre1, hopefully leading up to
a new [unofficial] release.
I am currently working on getting the Intel 430TX (Triton I) low-end
Pentium chipset working with OpenBIOS. My goal is to be able to boot
either an MS-DOS or Linux OS, just like a regular BIOS.
After that, I will probably tackle the Intel 430FX chipset, or a newer
Via-based chipset like the VT82C686A.
So if you have patched to OpenBIOS, please "diff" them against the
current release on the Web site, 0.0.2-pre1, and post them to the
mailing list. (or e-mail directly me to if the patches are large)
I will integrate all these patches and roll a new tarball, probably
sometime around Valentine's Day (Feb 14th).
Input, comments, and/or patches are greatly appreciated! I think
OpenBIOS is a great project, especially for all the older PCs out there
with no BIOS updates since 1995 or so....
