Do we want to continue maintaining x-loader now that u-boot SPL is
by the way, does exists some documentation that explains how SPL works
and how to enable new boards using it?
I've an OMAP3 based board that is supported by x-loader + u-boot and
want to add support for it on u-boot SPL.
I was looking on similar boards code to learn how to do it but any
pointer to existing docs will be great.
Thanks a lot and best regards,

I'm agree, but it's possible to release version 1.5.2 and maintain the
repository alive meanwhile we migrate to the new uboot/spl. As I know,
maybe I'm wrong, the nand spl works, but the onenand spl it's not
implemented yet. Some boards like omap3evm and IGEP v2 uses a OneNAND.

Start with doc/README.SPL from u-boot tree :-)

I second you on this. SPL is the way to go but we shouldn't deprecate
x-loader until all boards are migrated or at least until we have
everything we need to migrate implemented in u-boot (i.e

Yes, I did but still is a bit scarce, or I'm a slow learner ;-)
I know that we can use CONFIG_SPL_BUILD to decide what ends on the SPL
binary from the board code, but still there things that are not clear
to me, like how to use the generic U-Boot libraries such as
CONFIG_SPL_MMC_SUPPORT and CONFIG_SPL_NAND_SUPPORT.
