I didn't forget about that...

Device support... Yes, some things are handled a bit different for some
CPU devices as they are in AVR and ARM. Porting the ARM is not a problem
as it even makes code easier for it.

The problem is, that I do 50..60h per week for the project I initially
ported STM32 for. I am about 4 weeks before the final release and then I
still have more than half of my holiday time left.

My guess is that you open the trunk again for all people to go. It
doesn't matter to me if I merge 4.10.x or 4.11.x with CM3 to build a
5.0.0. But I already fell some shame that I couldn't deliver in time. On
the other hand, job goes first and besides that it improved my local
version of devnut_m3n more and more. So the result should be even better.

Never heard of tls...
