No, it is not troll alert. 

This mailing list became worse and worse during last two weeks. Nearly 
each longer thread goes into OffTopic discussion, more and more flamewars 
(Linux <> GNU/Linux in 'Free your phone' is best example). All of that 
makes this list really hard to read.

During last days I look at threads, check who wrote something new and 
usually select 'mark all 60 mails as read' because I do not see 
interesting authors. From time to time I read one or two threads to find 
out what about thread is and mark it as 'worth reading' so next mails 
will get read by me.

I hope that openmoko-devel will get open soon to new subscribers and that 
there will be someone who will have power to remove trolls from it.
