 We're just having a, hm, major event, an Amiga conferences with about 150
ppls attending :-) Among them about 10 to 20 NetBSD-Amiga freaks. To make
it short: Klaus Burckert (Mr. Picasso himself), Markus Wild and me are
working on some sort of specs for a grfbus. Regarding Cirrus: We are
about to check why some Amiga configs refuse to wrok with the current driver.
