The Emdebian project is wider than just Emdebian Grip but there's a
separate amount of work to get the other large section - toolchains -
integrated into Debian. Once that is complete, it will be interesting
to see what people want from Emdebian.

Emdebian Grip 3.1 is based on Wheezy, not squeeze.


Emdebian Grip 3.1 will not be worth keeping once Debian drops Wheezy
as oldstable. Wheezy is currently Debian stable - the Jessie freeze
starts in November this year, release at end of 2014 / beginning of 2015
- this is the point at which wheezy becomes old-stable. At some point in
probably 2016, Debian will drop wheezy from the mirrors in preparation
for the release freeze of Jessie+1 (to make room for Jessie to become
oldstable). By that time, I don't expect anyone to still be wanting Grip
3.1 or Wheezy.
