Here are the lists on gnmane that have 'gps' in their name:

gmane.comp.hardware.gps.opensource :

This is about an opensource gps baseband software receiver. Nothing of 
interest for openmoko as the embedded ublox is already doing the job. 
This is working on an old GecPlessey chip (not sure at the spelling, 
former GPS Builder for old timers like me who know a bit about the GPS 
field). Whenever Openmoko wants to switch to a cheaper and lighter gps 
chipset, that would be nice IMO. This is the solution used by ASUS in 
one of its ultra laptop. Of course the chip in the ASUS requires Windows 
and a proprietary optional software to work.
The list is very low traffic.


This is about gpsdrive AFAIU.

gmane.comp.hardware.gps.gpsd.* :

This is about gpsd.

That's all I know,
