We all hope so :)

Basically it seems as if the am3517 has the same sgx530 inside as
the dm3730.

Yes, DRM is more future proof.

Basically it is the DDK 1.10 driver and userland.

The latest kernel driver of this project allows to choose between
several DDK versions.

DDK 1.10 compiles and can be started (at least on OMAP3) but then
the driver does not find any displays. Maybe because I have no longer
enabled the fbdev subsystem.

Unfortunately the DDK+UM 1.14 can also start but simply reports a
memory mapping error where we have no clue yet where it comes

Yes, that is very welcome. I think a table / matrix of links to
all user-space packages and status would also be very heplful.

It should be possible. I have checked my account and I seem to
have admin rights.

There is a ckeckbox:

"Restrict editing to users in teams with push access only 
Public wikis will still be readable by everyone."

So this would mean that you need push access. But I do not
really know how to enable this.
