Martin Voelkle <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: gpl
Other License: 
Package: Yet another computer
System name: march
Type: non-GNU

The goal of this project is to design a GPLed computer from digital 
architecture to end-user front-end, without limitation from existing hardware 
or software.
The main principles are:
- clean, pure design
- very extensible, generic
- realistic
Some of the design ideas are:
- network-inspired internal microprocessor buses
- superscalar processing
- microcode-based dedicated hardware
- various programming language levels (like java/c++/c/asm)
- very reduced low-level ISA
- compiled/interpreted (at will) functional programming language
- syntax-less programming
- latest OS design principles
Every physical part that is not digital (io devices) will be simulated.
It does not exist yet but I\'m working on it.

Other Software Required:
- g++ or maybe gcj for the digital hardware description library, the rest will 
be build on top of it.
- autotools
- other libraries that might be used to simulate hardware parts (like Xlib for 
screens), this will be updated when needed

Other Comments:
It\'s not mean to be usefull, but to see what can be done (you can call this 
computer science masturbation if you want).
