Right now, that is planned to be based off of u-boot-v1. Nishanth has
done enough with u-boot-v2 to enable a nice, small image useful for
board recovery and I think there is a lot of potential for excellent
u-boot-v2 support of BeagleBoard, but I don't feel a big community
shift away from u-boot-v1 yet. The licensing of u-boot-v1 as GPLv3,
however, could quickly drive need for u-boot-v2 support for commercial
products. I'd be happy to hear some feedback here regarding what
should be shipped on the boards.

Khasim isn't working on u-boot-v2 right now, so best to put them right
here on this mailing list and likely CC the u-boot-v2 mailing list. I
know some people complain about the volume of traffic on this list,
but I think the threading has been pretty good and the noise here
isn't really bad. It is a lot nicer to read about u-boot-v2 than to
read posts that are answered in the wikis and FAQs.
