Just curious as to why you would need this? For anyone not familiar with this - Canon Hack Development Kit. And it's for Powershots, not DSLR's. So maybe this belongs in the P&S section?

The nearest you'll come at the moment is with the information at the Pentax Hack site and discussed in the linked thread

Unfortunately, its gone a little quiet of late as the main driver of the site (tr13) has a real job to do as well......

Keep dreaming...

I love CHDK, so after I bought K-X, I sold Lumix FZ28 but kept Canon SD1100 thanks to CHDK.
It works really nice for things like timelapses and even HDR timelapses

Pentax Remote Assistant

It's not CHDK, but Pentax does have software called "Pentax Remote Assistant" that provides remote shutter release, time-lapse, and alot more. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure it only works with a handful of older dSLR cameras, like the *ist, K10D, K20D. I think that has more to do with them changing the design of the firmware than anything else.

That means there'd likely need to be at least two different versions of a Pentax-CHDK: one for the older K10D/K20D cameras, and one for the newer K-series cameras.
