Purpose

Michael Shiloh proposed in a mail to make a poll for the Openmoko "Community Member of the Week".

"The intent is clearly to identify and appreciate those of you who have made and continue to make substantial contributions, and also to encourage that extra bit of work required to turn a good application into an excellent one, with a nicely polished GUI, a well written user guide, etc."

I'm not sure, how the voting should be handled. However, I want to start with a nomination.

Nomination

Week 1: Monday, 31 March

Nominee Reason Votes
Kevin Kevin writes the (almost) daily Snapshot review and reports on the progress and problems of the current software. Since I'm not an owner of a GTA01, I can't test the software by myself. Therefore any information about Openmoko makes the waiting for the Freerunner less bitter. I'm reading the different mailing lists very carefully and come to know of solved bugs and new features. However, Kevin gives with his reviews an impression of the software from a users point of view. And when the Freerunner is released, I hope Kevin will continue with his reviews so I always know what snapshot is safe to use. Avanc; Treviño; Iandouglas; GaidinTS; Tingo; Wedge;Dolson;Wurp
Josch Josch has done the really cool hack of getting a full debian installation, complete with XOrg and touch screen support, up and running on a Neo 1973. Cb22; Jluis; Marcel_Moczo; fgau; buz; emdete; Dunedan; ctypp;TRIsoft;
ScaredyCat ScaredyCat generates his own daily images and publishes them. In these images he "plays around" with alternatives such as the GTK theme. This provides some insight into technical alternatives that can improve Openmoko. He's also quite willing to check for the existance and repeatability of bugs and is constantly active on IRC.
