So, Lefty;

What can you share about Access and ALP and the relationship to OpenMoko

Don't see any "community" around Access of the vitality of OpenMoko.
The Access forums seem rather limited.  Some real two-way-street
cooperation would seemingly be mutually beneficial to the two efforts,
as well as to embedded/phone FOSS more generally.
