I obviously don't represent Openmoko, and based my comments on the
release notes for those Om.x releases, and on public statements from
Openmoko developers - which may or may not correspond to overall
Openmoko strategy, depending on which developer is saying it ;-)

However, this is in the context of Openmoko moving to FSO-based images
"Real Soon Now", and the autobuilder for FSO-based images definitely
does support GTA01 - mainly because I maintain it, and up until recently
I only had a GTA01 to test with, and because Mickey and I want the
autobuilder to build for as many different phones as we can given the
resources available.

There has also been an update by Openmoko to gllin for the GTA01 since
Openmoko stopped releasing GTA01 Om.x images.

So you can't necessarily draw a "no support at all for GTA01" conclusion
from observing "no GTA01 Om.x images".
