Well blow me down, the tested kernel/rootfs wiki page has been updated
at last, http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Phase_1_Software_Testing
with a build from yesterday, scroll down to the bottom and try that.
Otherwise click on the links in the repositories page
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Repositories and then click on 'last
modified' twice to bring the latest added to the top of the page,
although these may not have any feedback about them.

The neo is charging when it is off, when my neo is on and connected to
my pc it disconnects my usb modem so I _only_ charge it via usb when
it is off.
By the way, in my bios I have set 'halt' to 'all but keyboard' so my
usb periphs are on even when the pc is off so I can charge the neo
when the pc is off, though it may be only 100ma

There is a forum,I forget where but its low volume, instead type into google
your search term here site:wiki.openmoko.org
to search the wiki using google.
If you want to ask questions about the neo1973 you should post to the
device owners mailing list.
