Period May 22nd to June 25th, 2009

Important

FIXME, I'm placing this here as evidence of such important things, please reorganize, complete and above all, correct my English.

On June 2nd, Sean Moss-Pultz (CEO of OpenMoko Inc.) announced a major change in the OpenMoko world: the development of open phones was discontinued by Openmoko Inc. It will be assigned to the Community, so everybody is called to participate in this big challenge: make the project survive and grow!

The complete transition will happen in the coming months.

In the mean time Openmoko is beginning to move on the new course, the FSO team is looking for funding and continues development, we should expect the 5.5 release in a few days, the same for Paroli, 4 new developers are able to improve and maintain the kernel, but a lot of help is needed. Every contribution is important in order to realize the transition, so organization experts, developers, system administrators, testers, translators, wiki editors, all are welcome to get involved!
