as the URL has leaked onto this list by now anyway, I am somewhat late
to officially announce the all-new, ultra-shiny and wonderfully
interactive "DENX U-Boot and Linux Guide"[1] (DULG for short).

The DULG is the successor of the DPLG previously available in

sections will of course show the correct information for the selected

Disclaimer: If things don't work as you expect them to, remember that
this baby is _very_ young, but don't hesitate to ask.  There's even a
place in the Wiki itself for discussing it[6].

Browse, enjoy and last but not least _improve_ it by contributing!


PS: Before making major changes, it is a good idea to get familiar
    with the peculiarities of the DULG web explained in links from the
    main web[1].
