we hace such a list at openmoko, but i dunno about the release ability,
will follow that up internally and report back.

dunno, but good questions. sean c. should be able to answer that. ccing him.

not on the debugboard, but on the device itself. should be labeled, but
in case you want to really do that, just holler.
