I would prefer it to be on github.

Though usually I am the one who supports decentralization, but here are some arguments:

* github is a public place, where it is much more probable that your project can be discovered by the people who potentially can get involved, even if they did not know about the project before.

(many different ways - accidentally, or by following your friends' "likes", or by search, or by other means)

* github stimulates people to fork/make pull requests, this work is public, and it increases people's social status, when they contribute to the project on the public place, where it is noticeable by their community.

On the contrary, by keeping the separate, even public git tree, the chances to be discovored and contributed to are much lower.

Hi,I am happy to announce that after years of
abandonment and obsolescence, QtMoko is back in
maintained mode.

After several failed attempts, we now have a git
tree and a build system where we can apply
modifications and accept patches. And we
need testers :)

Currently, we have a Wheezy and a Jessie based
(different git branches) and both run on the
GTA04(A3, A4, A5) with latest Letux kernels.

Basically QtMoko also starts and runs on the Pyra,
but there is nothing to see on the display yet.
It simply remains black...

Here are the key resources:

Project Home: http://projects.goldelico.com/p/gta04-qtmoko/ - also for
reporting issues
Git: http://git.goldelico.com/?p=gta04-qtmoko.git;a=heads
Downloads: http://download.goldelico.com/letux-debian-rootfs/?C=M;O=D
- look for *-qtmoko.tbz
Install on µSD: DEV=/dev/sdb ./makesd qtmoko - to install a Jessie
based system
Letux-Debian: apt-get install letux-qtmoko - to install if you have
installed a different Letux system

Here are screen photos of QtMoko/Jessie/Kernel-4.15.2
running on a GTA04:

<pictures do not go through>

      Some things are not yet working and missing and
some Apps crash after starting, but we are just at
the beginning to be able to fix things.

Of course our little team can't do all that alone.
We need you and the broader community to help with
coding, testing or simply donations if you appreciate
our effort:


BR and thanks,
