Community Updates

The Community Updates article is updated at least twice a month by Michael Shiloh. Updates are also mailed to the openmoko-community mailing list, and major updates are also sent to the announce list.

Mailing lists

There are several [Mailing lists]. Archives of these lists can be searched with [Markmail]. There is a [Nabble web interface] to read and post to the lists.

The [openmoko community mailing list] is perhaps the most active. As of July 2008, its volume amounts to dozens of messages per day. Openmoko people are there too.

You may ask for help on the [support mailing list]


There is always a good group in the IRC channel #openmoko on FreeNode. If you aren't an IRC-er, you might want to review the discussions anyways:

Within the time contstraints of middle Europe, the Freenode channel #neo1973-germany is also active and members switch to english on demand.

You can also hang out in #openmoko-cdevel (the community developers channel) on if you have development questions.


Discussion Forums have been opened: The Unofficial OpenMoko Forums.

Community site based on trac

The German Neo1973 community created a Trac-based web site with SVN version control for their community projects: The most notable project is Zad, which consists of a GUI and daemons for GSM/GPRS muxing, GSM, GPS and more, written using Enlightment for smooth, smooth, fast, alpha-blended graphics and glib and dbus for daemons, but the actual code of the project is all python. And yes, you can even make phone calls with it (even without "echo").


The old community wiki is at, since the release of the official wiki at, it should no longer be used for OpenMoko. Please help integrating the content of the old wiki into this wiki. Please note that you cannot just copy from the old wiki, as the old wiki is (unfortunately) not clearly licensed and the content on this wiki is licensed under GNU FDL. You will instead need to rewrite the articles.

When you have integrated/rewritten an article, please update the old wiki with clear information that you have moved the information, so others do not update the old page.

Wishlist item: User's Manual

An User's Manual targetting a non-hacker audience has been started. I mean one of those small books you get when you buy a new phone. They are full of pictures, describe basic steps of phone usage and are translated into as many languages as possible.

--Bart 10:14, 2 October 2007 (CEST) I am Dutch, if a dutch user manual is needed I'd love to help.

Fradeve11: I give my appreciament and time to translate an user basic manual in Italian ;) very good idea!

darktim: I will do the German part. I'm not a coder, so that could be my contribution ;)

Yorick: I'm willing to do some Dutch translation
