I plan to put out a GIT-repository somewhere soon. There will be an
upstream branch with the snapshots from Buildroot and a master branch
which will hold whatever extra changes that are done for AVR32. Very
similar to how the Linux kernel for AVR32 is available.

Making diffs should be very simple if you are custom with GIT.

The current Atmel snapshot is held at the current stage to get a stable
base for the initial release. We try to put back the general changes
upstream, and fiddle as little as possible away from upstream.

With kind regards,
