* It's all one big project (i.e. ELKS the kernel is useless without commands to run) * It seems that these components are tightly tied to each other (really, what use is elkscmd without the ELKS kernel?) * elksnet is minuscule and shouldn't have its own repository; if anything, I feel it should be merged into elkscmd. * I'm a minimalist and a pragmatist, and while the command sources should be split from the kernel sources, I see no reason to dump them into different repos; without an obvious and practical good reason to add that extra complication, I won't.
Of course, if I'm wrong in that choice, we should talk about why. Honestly, at this stage, ELKS is in very real danger of dropping into irrelevance and left to rot forever. I could care less if every command had its own git repo, so long as people are working on the project!
Additionally, I'd like to assemble a list of open-source compilers that can build for 8086 and either are targeted to other 16-bit CPUs or can be relatively easily retargeted (I use that term loosely with compilers. If anyone has suggestions for alternative compilers, please email me with them, and I'll build a list and examine the merits of each against the others. The only ones I know of are tcc (by Fabrice Bellard), SDCC (targets Z80 but maybe we can retarget it)...and the venerable Bruce's C Compiler (bcc) which we already use. I dug up the original (non-Dev86) source for it and the 6809 target parts are in that version, so maybe I can figure out how to retarget it if I can dig up a 6809 emulator somewhere.
