I regard all of my patches as "submitted upstream", by virtue of
having been announced here.  Is there a specific further step that I
should take to offer and flag them to git.freesmartphone.org ?

If no one else wants to do it, I would be happy to be responsible for
collating further zhone development.

I know it's always been flagged as only a test UI, and there's that
big and very clear warning at the start of the code.  The problem is
that it's just too good-looking!  I don't know of any prettier phone
UI, and I don't know how to build an equally pretty one from scratch.
Hence I'm quite keen to continue using and developing it.

Can someone from freesmartphone.org comment on possible processes here?

Thanks, I will integrate these.  [2] looks easy, but [3] looks like it
will need a tweak to retain the current SIM-backed contacts too.
