Correct. The external IP access/firewalling has even been sorted out
so it will have a permanent IP, and be sited outside the company
firewall for easier access soon.

I have a kurobox pro here donated by marvell for Debian use. It needs
debianising and siting. I could site it but am terifically short of
time for the debianising bit (which is why it hasn't happenened yet).
it's 128MB, not 256MB which isn't ideal, but is otherwise reasonably

Does anyone know if current installer images will work? I find some
rather old (2.4 kernel) stuff here:
and some newer stuff but with kernel for the Kuro-HG box here:

If there is something I can expect to 'just work' then I'll have a
go. Otherwise I'd prefer to give it to someone with more time/interest
to fight with. Any takers? Handover at FOSDEM, perhaps?
