Request to add TIGCC tools to Fedora.

Description of problem:
A really nice suite of Ti Calculator tools should be added to Fedora. (IMHO)
I know this isn't directly a gcc related issue, but I couldn't figure out
where else to put it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All latest versions from their respective websites.
Texas Instruments makes a calculator called the TI 89 that uses a 68000 for
the processor. A TI89 has the same processor and more memory than the
original Mac 128 !
A group of people have developed a gcc compiler (special version of the gcc
68000 version) , an IDE, a "linking program" and an emulator for the
calculator. This group of tools allows users to write asm or C code on a PC
and ultimately run it on the calculator.
I think this is an outstanding achievement and the tools are worthwhile to
consider including in the next Fedora extras.
The tools are not 100% perfect. They could use a bit of polish here and
there, but they are certainly functional.
The respective starting websites are:
The team advocates using KTIGCC for the IDE, which is linked to from the TIGCC
You should either add it to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/WishList
or better yet contribute those packages
or find somebody to do it. This is really a wrong place to submit such a
I am planning to submit these, but my current packages need some cleanups. See
http://repo.calcforge.org/ for now. In any case, the Fedora GCC maintainer is
the wrong person to bug with this. ;-)
