Thanks.

Please post these separately, not as "replies" to the thread that
started with your weekly report.  Please use message Subject of
"Parallella: Litecoin mining", so that it'd be easy for Yaniv to spot
these messages and comment where relevant.

Does this mean that you have a cut-down cgminer tree now, which you'll
use as a base for your development on Parallella?  Did you have to
produce such a tree?  Couldn't you simply build the existing cgminer
(the last CPU-enabled version) on Parallella (on ARM for now)?  Did you
make those changes to speedup test builds, expecting that you'd need to
do many of those?

OK, but what are you referring to by Scrypt.c?  There's no file by that
name in cgminer tree; the closest match is scrypt.c (with lowercase "s").

What questions did you have for Con Kolivas?
