In the past Transvirtual had two versions of Kaffe, Custom Edition for
embleded devices and Open Edition (kaffe.org).

Since one year TVT release Custom Edition under GNU GPL.  So yes, there
are both under GNU GPL and follow cleanroom development policy.

But changes have been done in Custom Edition and in Open Edition since
few years by two teams.  Some time TVT imports some changes into Open

Today Custom Edition (TVT) and Open Edition (kaffe.org) have too many
differencies to merge them easyly.  TVT and I hope a merge of both

For now, Custom Edition is well design for and PocketLinux where Open
Edition builds on various CPU Family and OS.

BTW, you can mix code between both versions but play attention of what
you are doing, some fixes in kaffe.org will break changes of TVT Kaffe
and some changes in TVT Kaffe will break others in kaffe.org.

Giving that, you can mix code.
