I'm not a g-mail customer (unless somehow my relay address is
hooked into them - but I'm not getting duplicated); however, I
experienced about 2 days with no deliveries from any of the multiple
openmoko lists to which I'm subscribed.  Was going to look the URLs of
my recent mails on the subject, but

Ah - finally:

Still seem to be some capacity/functionality issues on the server end,
but then that's what we're discussing.]

cross-linking between and sites, both at the
top level, and down the hierarchy at appropriate points (e.g. the .com
site should point to appropriate .org page[s] when applications are
mentioned).  This would help those finding the Neo1973/GTA0x at the .com
site to get hooked into the community, and links from the .org to .com
would help to point potential customers to where they can acquire the

Would also be nice to see at least some links or acknowledgements from
FIC corporate site[s] to both.  I couldn't find any OpenMoko or Neo1973
references on the FIC home page or via the site search box.  [A google
on "openmoko" does turn up two pages - one English and
one Chinese.  The English one shows no visible reference to OpenMoko,
but the Chinese automatic translation seems to be job listings and has
one OPENMOKO reference but no description of duties.  But I digress...]

I really hope the OpenMoko efforts come together on the corporate end
