Hmm, would be nice to have OpenMoko running there too.
Tomorrow I'll put our enterprise server into a data center, directly connected 
to the european backbone.
My enterprise ( has decided to officialy support OpenMoko as a 
We have some big customers ATM, which will need to have organizers, etc.
So hopefully our activity will push the project (hardware and software) again.
Tomorrow we will install our new server directly to one of the backbones in 
europe. With this emense uplink we can not only support OpenMoko by developing 
and selling devices to enterprises, but also can provide a free repository to 
the OpenMoko developers.
Here in switzerland its more legere concerning the license and patent 
politics, so with this repo it will be possible to publish root images with 
included mp3-players and so on, again.
I hope, this gift will be taken from the community thankfully.

I think we can use the software developed by your crew and port it to 
OpenMoko, yes.
