My 2 cents.

Qtopia contains FSO related components and vice versa. om2008 contains Qtopia 

Qtopia runs on a modified om2008. FSO will be merged into om2008.

Now ... where was this split to be?

In the end it looks like Qtopia/FSO/om2008 will be combined, or more to the 
point, unneeded separately. I can possibly see a need for a debian based 
mailling list.

I think the community just needs to calm down a bit and focus. More 
importantly, be patient, as this will all pass when the people who are in this 
for the right reasons, stick around.

People do need to be more specific with their details but that is partially a 
side effect of this new product being introduced in the state it is in. Some 
people have less than an idea of what's going.

Anyone serious about making this list usable needs to take a firmer stance on 
what they reply to and how. Be firm, not mean ... and I'm sure it will all 
work out :) ... requiring at least the distro in the subject would be a good 
start. I admit the list is feeling more like general discussion rather than 
community discussion.
