I am from the community ;) And not in my 10+ years of FOSS community
development have I seen any project that had problems with properly
Forums are for people who don't understand the technology of properly
dealing with e-mails. Of what use is something that's only available
online? Of no use at all. Try keeping a local copy of a forum on your
laptop. Why should openmoko be any different?
We will most likely have a forum for _end users_ at a time where we want
to address end users. But not for developers, sorry.

If you consider yourself a "dumb user", then you probably are not the
kind of developer crowd that we are addressing at this moment :(
