and the floating copy you mention, I had been
maintaining it up-to-date with latest cvs, as per
current employer's needs, with couple of bugfixes and
optimisations at couple of places.
looking at the copy that i had downloaded from their
site, apart from fixes/optimisations to it, there are
some small things that need to be got in shape, that's
what i think, i might be wrong. i don't know much of
i guess, there would have been some issues at some
level, oherwise the organisation for which i am
working (at the moment of writing this mail) is quite
supportive of open-source initiatives, and i believe
they can possibly maintain ecos for cradle's
architecture too and also help in getting it into
public cvs repository.
personally, i would find it good for ecos to have
inclusion of this hal also in public cvs repository,
for this hal would get better treatment and as a
freelance programmer/consultant or employee of some
right kind of organisation, i can contribute to
I don't know if mentioning having worked on cradle
architecture (after they are making it available on
their site) though using non-organisation account will
be termed by organisation people as some kind of
violation of some NDAs which they might have/had in
past? as per that logic, even this kind of mention in
resume posted on internet or sent to someone will also
be termed as violation.
