Maybe related resp helping: http://wiki.maemo.org/Why_the_closed_packages (NB that's not my POV, usual disclaimers apply), and http://wiki.maemo.org/Fremantle_closed_packages The maemo fremantle porting project is not targeted at creating a fork or new release of maemo OS, but strictly to keep compatibility from N900 to Neo900 so users can ideally restore a backup from their old N900 to their new Neo900 and the device acts exactly like user got used to. Also we don't plan to recompile the repositories with all the applications, and for the much needed core apps like dialer we even can't do that since they are closed. However you're free to run any distro you like on GTA04 and GTA04-N900 aka Neo900, just the maemo community fremantle porting task force will not bother about "rebasing on debian" or whatever, the goals of that task force are clearly defined. cheers /j -- () ascii ribbon campaign - against html e-mail /\ www.asciiribbon.org - against proprietary attachments (alas the above page got scrapped due to resignation(!!), so here some supplementary links:) http://www.georgedillon.com/web/html_email_is_evil.shtml http://www.nonhtmlmail.org/campaign.html http://www.georgedillon.com/web/html_email_is_evil_still.shtml http://www.gerstbach.at/2004/ascii/ (German)
