thanks Wolfgang.

I'm also honoured to help, and I'll try, but I still have a couple of questions:

1. what can we do about the 40KB limit on u-boot-users?  A patch for new board support usually requires more than that, and even when given a URL, it's not as easy for people to review the patches properly.

2. what is the utility of the "U-Boot spam^H^H^H^Hpatch tracking system"? and the "DENX Support System" for that matter?  Is it me or are they just cluttering people's inboxes?

3. does a subsystem maintainer get leverage into changes made in the higher level components of Das U-Boot?  E.g., I'm still a firm believer that the device tree source should live in the bootloader ;)
