Nice one KAD!

Now that my Gen3 is alive again I will test this and have a look at integrating Gen3 in apps repository.

actually there are app.bin's already available for gen3 in repository

application.xml just needs this <model>SMP</model>

for entware. I did not add to repository because it does not end with .app.bin
it's just entware.bin

because the handling at boot time needs to be different from a regular app.bin

I know, it's probably quite close to the opt.bin ...
Anyways we could put optware and entware into repo, I'll have a look for adding some guts to support this, should be quite easy since we can add those statically,
independed from svn updates, manifest.xml just needs links for it. (AFAIR but I will have a look on the weekend)
