Looks interesting, I'll watch it some day.

It's true, I haven't contributed to the code nor translations, Timo
Jyrinki translated Tangogps into Finnish.

Kustomizer, the script I wrote to turn OM2008.12 into full distro,
installed Tangogps (http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Kustomizer I don't
have stats from longer period, but the various versions of the script
have been downloaded 5 times already in January 2010 although
Kustomizer's been discontinued for almost 10 months already.. Stop
using it people, go to SHR! ;)

I reviewed Tangogps, liked it a lot and gave it good grades:

I passed on the word about a new release to the Freerunner community:

In co-operation with the Open Source Geospatial Foundation I started a
mailing list to discuss FOSS-GPS related topics to connect the users &

Yes, I started the IRC channel and now feel very sorry for doing it.

I did it to enable the users & devels to discuss it real time. We've
had some nice discussion there about some new tools other users have
written and helped other Tangogps users for example to configure map

When I started the channel, I notified you about it (e-mail 11/15/09)
asking you to join so I could pass on the admin rights to you.
At that time, I didn't know you need to be the author or similar to
start a channel at Freenode. When someone pointed that out to me, I
was immediately co-operative to do whatever's needed to get things
straight. So if you think it's the best, I can leave the channel any
time, but I cannot force other people to do the same.

Thank you Marcus for Tangogps. It's still maybe the most used single
application I use on my Freerunner.

The community shall be the judge and point me where did I go wrong.
