Hi Carsten, Sorry to trouble you, but who are these designers, please? I think many of us would like to contribute to the ASU, seeing as how it's the future of Openmoko, so this would appear to be a limitation upon community contributions. Where are the design documents which say "no keyboard toggle button should be included", please? If one wishes to contribute code or patches to ASU then I guess it's necessary to know this, or one will find patches rejected because they don't meet this design specification? Stroller. _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list email@example.com http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
