Bi-weekly OpenMoko community update

Hello everyone,

I have some updates for you, and a question.

First the updates:

The GTA01 units that were shipped in the past two weeks have satisfied 
the back orders for GTA01. There continues to be demand for GTA01 so we 
are building some more.

GTA02 Wifi hardware has been working for about a week, so work can
proceed on the driver, which is currently in a pretty minimal state.

We're very happy with the u-blox/Atmel ATR0635 GPS Receiver, and thus
have made the decision to use this chip.

GTA02v3, the third revision of GTA02, is still being verified and
tested. This will take another couple of weeks, at which point we'll
make GTA02v4.

Now the question:

We want to make it easier for developers to work with OpenMoko. We 
realize that many of our resources (e.g. wiki, website, development 
tools) are decidedly not user friendly at the moment and that other 
resources (e.g. documentation) are missing. I'm going to start putting a 
lot more energy into this, and I'd like to hear your thoughts in general 
and in particular what should be tackled first. You may reply either to 
the list or to me personally, as you wish.
