Thanks for your answer. 
Atleast my postings do not go to the nulldevice :-)

As i have only small knowledge of Linux and am totally unfamiliar
with CVS, maybe i am too stupid to be helpful. OTOH i am working 
with various flavours of Forth and i am highly interested to use
OpenBios on embeddded controllers as base of my homebrewn RTOS.
I downloaded the paflof-tarball, but did not really understand
it, mainly because i do not know PERL. The C-Code was a bit too
complicated to be understood in half an hour, but i think i can
manage it during half a day.

Therefore my question: Is there some global description available,
which describes the design of the whole thing, or do i need to
understand everything from the sourcecode ?

If there is no such description, i am interested to write it, 
just to be sure i have understood everything right. Does it 
make sense to contact Segher Boessenkool directly ?

Thanks for your patience
