The logical further step may be to join SHR and have Paroli as an
alternative to SHR phone apps or litephone and so on.
I really appreciate SHR guys effort, the only thing I do not like is
the absence of a testing_to_stable branch, (Yes! I know it was
discussed and promised a lot of time for about a year) that becomes a
problem due the unstable nature of SHR-U (Yes! I know the meaning of
For that reason I appreciate a lot the way you worked on om2009, the
several testing releases, the experimental separation, the decision to
use a 2.6.28 more wifi reliable kernel in the release candidate, while
trying the 2.6.30 on the experimental, avoiding to touch sensible core
parts of OE, as the opkg breaking patches and so on.

So if you'll join SHR team, please consider in merging all that
aspects, it may be helping in creating the wanted testing branch ;)
and please support not shr/E applications other than paroli too, there
are some work in progress about nice alternatives.

Taking care of that will get +10 not only from me ;)
