Unix Test Port

One more question-
I'm finally getting around to looking into producing a port of rtems to the
ATmel AVRmega chipset. Looking on the website, I see that the documentation
on the site is 2 years old, or so... Is that the documentation I should be
going from for producing a port based on the 1007 snapshot, or should I be
using something else?
