There are a number of bugs reported against eCos 3.0 beta 1 which are
still in the NEW state - the default assignee has not accepted the bug.
See the URL in my earlier mail (appended) and add the "Status" column to
your customised view of the bug list if necessary.
We need to form a view as to which of these bugs are important for eCos
3.0 and ensure that someone is assigned to fix the important ones. One
or two of the bugs have already been marked as non-blocking for eCos 3.0
which is fine.
In some of these cases it may be that the default assignee is not the
most appropriate person to look at the bug. If you are the default
assignee for one of these bugs, can you please indicate whether or not
you are intending to look at the bug for eCos 3.0 either by accepting
the bug (changing the state to ASSIGNED) or by adding some comment that
the bug is not important and/or someone else should look at it.
I'm particularly concerned about the POSIX test issues since POSIX
compatibility is an important feature.

We already have several bug reports against eCos 3.0 beta 1:
I'm not complaining. The whole point of the beta period is to find and
It would be helpful to share the load of processing these bugs as far as
possible. Could I therefore suggest that we all subscribe to the
"ecos-bugs" list on sourceware.org so that we are made aware of new bugs
as they arrive and can contribute where appropriate. Subscribing is
easily achieved using the mailing list request form:
