i think the DLX target is important due to its educational purpose
(orthogonal instruction set, few instructions - counted 74 in
binutils-2.16, and a couple of popular backgrounders that most guys
have read during univ. years). It is a reference RISC architecture.
Q: Has anybody stepped forward for taking over DLX target maintanance?
Until now I have used binutils from a user-only perspective. If nobody
else (more experienced with CVS etc) volunteers, then I would like to
maintain the DLX port.

Are copyright papers on file with the FSF on behalf of mr.
Kavvadias? I don't see any at a quick glance, but maybe this is
a special arrangement?

No - I slipped up. :-(
Nikolaos - before we can accept any further contributions from you, and
before you start to act as the DLX maintainer we need to have an FSF
copyright assignment in place. Please could you fill out the attached
form and send it off to the FSF in order to start this process running ?

No, it is not necessary. I was just slow in getting round to reviewing
If RDOS support is going to require more than the few lines of change in
the patch you submitted then we might consider looking for a maintainer,
but if we went down that road it would require you signing an FSF
