Re: cross-get script
Awesome ! :-)
I fixed a couple typos and function do_once_a_day looks like working.
It also downloads *_all packages.
I have created a branch for buildcross using cross-get. It is working quite well.
This script is going to help for cross toolchain in sync with Debian proper for Sarge, i believe.
