Note: the 'thing' called eCos 2.0 is now more than 4 years old.  We truly
only work from the "current" CVS tree.

These numbers only mean something to Intel - eCos [hence, RedBoot] did not
make such release numbers.  If you want historical versions that came from
Intel, I'm afraid that you'll have to get them from Intel as they did not
send their stuff to our repository in times past.

This is the appropriate place to discuss RedBoot.
