No reason except I left Openmoko a couple of weeks ago along with a
bunch of other people.

A reduced version of the kernel maintainer role I did for around a year
got offered around a few places it seems and Werner got the consolation
prize apparently.

We certainly covered a lot of ground in that year, so many problems
found and fixed, GTA02 able to ship, the kernel upleveled towards HEAD,
Android stuff taken in, 6410 stuff funded and absorbed into the same
tree, specifying GTA03 design and working on that.  It's hard to
remember that before I started Openmoko were stuck on and svn
and GTA02 was very far away from an even arguably shippable state.

Now my Openmoko bits and pieces are in a box in the garage.  I won't be
checking my @openmoko.com email any further, if anyone feels the urge
they can get me on andy at warmcat.com.

The job I moved to also involves maintaining Qi and the Linux Kernel on
ARM-based stuff, iMX31 though, so I am sure we'll all see each other
around :-)
