A possible incentive for Purism might be if GTA04A5 could deliver fast.

The fate of Librem 5 hangs on multiple (arguably thin) threads, one of 
which being existence of Phone-oriented software for Mainline linux, and 
if geeks had access *soon* to a tinkerphone, that would likely boost 
developer time poured into KDE and GNOME and Enlightenment and other 
efforts in supporting Phone environments.

Can you try estimate a timeframe of realizing GTA04A5, from the moment 
money is magically no longer an issue?

P.S. I am hired by Purism, but do not represent them here (expect me to 
very explicitly state so if I ever get the priviledge of representing 
Purism or any other corporation).
