I think one point hasn't been addressed much in this discussion so far. How important are all the *.openmoko.org services to us? So I suggest to everyone on this mailing list to give an indication like this: I regard as important: ( ) lists.openmoko.org (incl. the mailing lists) ( ) wiki.openmoko.org ( ) docs.openmoko.org ( ) svn.openmoko.org ( ) people.openmoko.org ( ) projects.openmoko.org ( ) Others: __________________ This may shed a new light on this topic. Nikolaus PS: looking the mailing lists I have seen only three with major activity: 1. this list (community) 2. devel (which is more or less a dfu-util discussion list) 3. openmoko-kernel _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
