please calm down. I know from your blog how upset you are from  
setting up the new office location,
networks and servers during Taifun time.

But just one question to answer for yourself: do you want to have  
community involvement or not?

Now as your network appears to work again, please focus on solving  
kernel, uboot, etc. issues that we
as the "dumb users" can't solve ourselves. I am for example still  
fighting the issue with short and long
rootfs flashing and NAND erasing, that leaves an inoperable OpenMoko  
device (Bug # 719). Maybe,
it is not a software issue at all but just a documentation on what to  
do differently? I simply got stuck with
my knowledge.

Best regards,
