Someone to actually do the work and maintain it, I would assume. For most projects that means whoever suggests it either volunteers or it doesn't happen.

I would certainly be interested in doing some copy-editing for the English edition but I only have so much time a month I could spare for it.

Switching away from all this back-and-forth about the chips themselves, what would I like in a modern 68k Amiga board?

The thing is, we need to cover both bases -- individual chips and all-in-one chips. For a new, from-scratch Amiga design, sure put the custom chipset in a single FPGA. For everything else, individual...

I'd simply be happy to have a new source of 68k family CPUs and the set of custom chips. Even better, open-use VHDL or Verilog sources for the above, for FPGA synthesis. As long as we have that,...

I don't think we use render.library directly anyway, it's a dependency of guigfx.library (whose use can be disabled in iGame).

I wonder if a separate build will be needed for AROS like we do for OS4 and MorphOS. I guess Zune isn't exactly a plug-in replacement for MUI.
