This is very true.  I wasn't aware of the SVN repository until it was
mentioned in this thread.  Over the weekend, I have merged almost all
the SVN changes:


As you mentioned, due to cvs.linux-m68k.org being unmaintained for
years, the code in the Debian package (maintained by Rick Younie, now
group maintained by Francesco Paolo Lovergine, Michael Banck and I),
and the code used by the buildds has diverged over the years.  Even
after the above merge the diff is still around 1000 lines, which I
hope we can reduce much further if we can merge the changes both ways
to reduce the differences as much as possible.  Perl being Perl, so
far all the merging has been by hand, and going through the remaining
huge diff by hand will take some time.
