Well, amongst other things, it allowed everything to be discussed very 
frankly without the worry that it would be archived for ever ;)

Ah a resolution, I knew we forgot something ;-) 

Give us a couple of days to sort things out and I'll post some more 
details for users, developers and the generally interested.

At the moment it looks like updating the riscos.info pages and tutorials 
to point at the spoon repository, downloads and documenation, and making 
sure all the riscos.info content is either, replicated in spoon, up to 
date, or in the case of some tutorials, with large caveats explaining 
this was for an earlier version. This should remove the confusion 
surrounding the two repositories (one no longer being used).


BTW, there isn't much to 'merge', as riscos.info is merely spoon 0.8.2 
with some features added to HostFS [1]

[1] Which Spoon never commited due to knowing that HostFS had to be synced 
against the later Arcem changes for considerably better filecore 
correctness, moving even further away from the Arcem version would have 
made this more difficult. This has now happened, as such re-adding the 
features can be done in the future.
