To them, it would appear that these things never go out, and that they're in the dark.
<br><br>It seems to me that we see these kind of conversations start about every other month.<br><br>What about creating a "state of the project" email that is sent on subscribe, kind of a welcome to openmoko, here's what's going on: a 2 minute blurb to bring people up to speed, and reference them to the appropriate wiki pages to find out what else they need? This would need to be kept reasonably up to date, probably revised after every big announcement, and after the bi-weekly emails.
<br><br>To a new subscriber though, it would give them an "official" answer about what's going on, until they can see some of the updates that get sent out.<br><br>What do people think? Might this solve some of the problem?
