[debian] “Official” installer revision now always in git

just a quick announcement from the Debian folks. Because we continually
improve the installer script, it turned out to be most useful if
everyone uses the latest version. Therefore, the official place to get
the source is now

The old URL at http://pkg-fso.alioth.debian.org/freerunner/install.sh
can still be used (it might be easier to type if you can’t copy’n’paste,
and wget will save it under a nice name), as it’s just a redirect to the
URL mentioned above.

Notable changes are:
      * The use of the general auto-login script “nodm” instead of
        zhone-session. Session configuration can now be done by
        modifying /root/.xsession.
      * Device independent frameworkd and accompanying configuration
        packages. If apt-get upgrade breaks your FreeRunner, try to run
        apt-get install fso-config-gta02
      * openmoko-panel-plugin installed by default (running in trayer),
        to provide keyboard toggle and device control.
      * The use of the packaged kernel instead of wget/tar. To get this
        going, run apt-get install linux-image-2.6.24-openmoko-gta02

Most of these are due to Luca “Gismo” Capello’s great work.
