[asac, Jul 24, 2011]: please update status of not moving blueprints frequently. its hard to gather whats going on here.
[botao, 16th July 2011]: SD card flashing has been done successfully for s5pv310 with the trunk version of Linaro image tools, wiki pages have been updated too.
[botao, 13th July 2011]: Anmar will send me a Samsung V310 SMDK EVT0 board tomorrow, so the remote connection to Origen board is unnecessary.
[asac, Jul 11, 2011]: blueprint summary/description could be done with more love.
[asac, Jul 11, 2011]: I think we already know what "Create build in TODO" involves; would be cool if we could use that knowledge to break that step down in "small steps" a bit. like: this involves setting up device/... manifests, etc.
