thanks for all the work you did to bring Openmoko forward!

Even though it took all so long due to all our detours, I'm quite satisfied 
with what the Openmoko community has created throughout the years, especially 
since Openmoko Inc. stopped guiding the project.

A hardware family often is the initial trigger to establish a community, 
however it's important to embrace and extend, especially when the days of the 
hardware family are counted. As other solution come around, it gets important 
for the Openmoko community to widen the focus and grow into something larger.

I created the project to cover a much wider scope than 
Openmoko -- as such, we are looking forward to continue our work on FSO 
covering both anti-vendor-ports and forthcoming semiopen devices such as the 
Palm Pre and the Nokia N900.

So... good bye and hello again!

See you soon,
