Overview
Comment:Changed all references to "FOCAL 69" to "FOCAL,1969", and linked to the new "[Running FOCAL,1969]" wiki article which explains why this naming difference matters.

Tightened up the Fossil vs Git stuff in HACKERS.md, added a bit more Fossil help, added some links to external help, and reorganized the top level sections to flow better. check-in: ce1fca0017 user: tangent tags: trunk

Merged the use of libbcm_host from trunk with Oscar's new GPIO pull up/down setup code to get the best of both worlds. This requires a version of libbcm_host that was only just released: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/issues/1161 Leaf check-in: 1eee471981 user: tangent tags: pi4-gpio-clean

    That having been said, people don't go to a ren fair and expect to
    experience the historical ubiquity of typhoid fever, so do not feel
    guilty if you choose to try this option.

*   **--enable-os8-focal69** — Because the default installation includes
    U/W FOCAL, we have chosen to leave FOCAL 69 out by default to save
    space on the O/S 8 system disk. You can give this option to install
    this implementation alongside U/W FOCAL, or you can couple this
    option with `--disable-os8-uwfocal` to reverse our choice of which
    FOCAL implementation to install by default.

    You should know that the reason we made this choice is that the
    version of FOCAL 69 we are currently shipping is fairly minimal: we
    believe we are shipping the original DEC version of FOCAL 69 plus a
    few carefully-selected overlays. There are many more overlays and
    patches available on the Internet for FOCAL 69, but we have not had
    time to sort through these and make choices of which ones to ship or
    how to manage which ones get installed. Thus our choice: we want to
    provide the most functional version of FOCAL by default, and within
    the limitations of the time we have chosen to spend on this, that is
    U/W FOCAL today.

    (See our [U/W FOCAL manual supplement][suppd] for a list of
    differences between these versions of FOCAL, which implicitly
    explains why we chose it.)

    It is possible that we will eventually add enough patches and
    overlays to FOCAL 69 that it will become more powerful than U/W
    FOCAL, so we might then choose to switch the defaults, but that is
    just speculation at the time of this writing.
