I have the Verdex Pro XL6P with the ethernet/wifi expansion board and serial breakout board.

After trying the stock linux [1] I started thinking about upgrading the kernel and software.

However, the documentation [2] and wiki [3] only explains how to check out from SVN and that hasn't been updated since 2008.

The new code seams to be in GIT but the Overo documentation [4] does not mention how to use it for Verdex.

Also from reading on this mailing list [5] it seams like some people are trying to merge Verdex support into GIT? Any idea when this is ready?

So, I wonder if Verdex is still supported? And where I can find instructions how to build Verdex images from GIT?
