Yes, they have a different view on all the projects. As far as
I understand there aren't any hardware-centerted devrooms.

This may be the main question for the FOSDEM organizers - what exactly is our project.
For them it may appear to be something fragmented between Distribution, Telephony, Embedded.
For all those components they have separate Devrooms.

Yes, that is also my impression.
What we can do is to organize our own "virtual devroom". Idea:
* we open a page fosdem2011 on wiki.openmoko.org
* everyone tries to get a presentation into all relevant devrooms
-- Mickey @ Telephony
-- Nikolaus @ Embedded or Lightning
-- Serdar @ Distribution miniconf
-- SHR @ Distribution miniconf
* on the wiki page we collect the time, location, title etc. to
provide our own "Openmoko" view into the FOSDEM database...
What do you think?
