Unless I'm quite mistaken, the request was for Openmoko to offer an
officially-supported development environment, beyond a tarballed toolchain
and wiki instructions.  Personally I've found the toolchain to be
sufficient unto my needs, and have pointed people to an Ubuntu-based vmware
image at the "FR stuff" link in my sig that contains preinstalled
toolchain, qemu, and various other useful accoutrements.  But an official,
actively-maintained and actively-supported complete development environment
/would/ be welcomed by many in the community, IMHO.
