I agree that "MIPS Port" would be a good name for this project, following
the "Haiku Port" that we already have.

"MIPS" is, however, a trademark of MIPS Technologies, Inc., so I've asked
Sun Legal for advice on whether and how to use that name.  I expect an
answer in the next day or two, at which point we can go ahead and set up
your initial page and mailing list.
