of course. eCos is developed using an open
development model. In addition to the full releases
anonymous CVS access to the current development sources is provided. Discussions
about the system will generally be held in the open ecos-discuss mailing list. However it
is necessary to apply a caveat to this: some developers prefer to keep their commercial work confidential, for example due to non-disclosure agreements. It is only when that port is distributed that all the eCos code must be made available under the terms of the GPL.
