hi all,

just a friendly reminder that we are getting a lot of people
subscribing to and posting to this community list that may not know
all the mailing list etiquette that you do.

So please be nice to these new-comers, and be patient with them;

* if a topic is raised that has been discussed and resolved before -
point them to the mailing list archives or where they can read about
the answer.

Even better, find a place to summarise and document the discussion on
the wiki - a formatted wiki page is 100 times easier to read than
digging through months of mailing list archives... :P

* if they ask, what is in your eyes a "stupid question" remember that
at one stage you knew little or nothing about the openmoko project:
they are just interested in getting an opensource mobile device (just
like the rest of us..  :P )

* i have also noticed that many newcomers obviously have not been
members of online communities or online development communities
before; if you come across one of these people, be nice and show them
the ropes.
