Hmm - there's a current issue regarding the GTA01 GPS gllin driver and
kernel /sys filesystem paths, so the response of Openmoko to that
"previous generation" issue is probably a good indicator of the sort of
attention that GTA02 Glamo will get once GTA03 is released.
I'm hoping that the response is a positive one from Openmoko.
Publishing the schematics will be a great first step, but there is still
the "previous generation" support for the proprietary NDA stuff that
needs to be factored into Openmoko's staffing plans (since the community
can't do it).
