Keep in mind that they are being generated on-the-fly straight out of
FreeBSD's CVS tree.  For that reason (probably since some bozo once
wanted to recursively fetch ``everything'' there), they do not allow
wget as a user-agent.

What you can see there is the current state of the patches included in
my FreeBSD ports of these tools.  As I'm coordinating these patches
with Eric Weddington, they are close to what Eric ships in WinAVR,
modulo the time lag between the respective releases, and modulo minor
things like me still keeping GCC at stabs as the default debugging
format for -g as there appear to be some DWARF-2 issues with AVR-GDB.

Yes, I've been posting at least the links to the current version of
the "new devices" patches here.  I once started out by one patch per
new device (group) supported, basically the way the patches can be
found in avr-libc's patch manager.  However, as more and more devices
have been added, with all patches affecting the very same few files,
that became impractical, so I started to roll one "new devices" patch
for each of binutils and GCC.  I've sent out these patches and/or the
FreeBSD cvsweb URL to interested parties every now and then.

Of course, feel free to open one patch tracker in avr-libc that keeps
the current version of these united "new devices" patches, if that
makes anyone's job easier.  We could probably close that "add support
for this" and "add support for that" individual patch items then as
soon as both, support has been added to the cumulative patches as well
as to avr-libc itself.  Right now, we leave them open until someone
eventually integrated everything into the official binutils and GCC

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
