Hi all, it could be also a good idea to have something like this
(done with this http://trac.edgewall.org/     software)
to keep anyone updated about the project. Not intended to use it as a 
roadmap with dates and deadlines, but used as a TODO list, so anyone 
could see that the tests with GTA02v3 are on the way and that the 
development of OpenMoko is at this state, the gps is not working 
actually and so on.
I don't think that every possible customer will subscribe to this ml, 
some of my friends didn't (we will buy some Neos to split the shipping 
tax) and when i said that the neo will be out (we hope) on december/jan 
it was a news for them.
So a simple roadmap or also a TODO list web page could be interesting to 
see which are the steps for the project and have a general idea of 
what's going on.
I like ml and i prefer them, but you can't subscribe to any ml to get 
information about all project you are interested in.

What about this idea?

It could be updated by the subscribers of this ml, so the guys from FIC 
could concentrate on testing and noone will "have to do" that because it 
could be annoying for a developer to "write sw, debug, write to the ml, 
change road map status,...." (at least it could be annoying for some devs).

See Ya
