OpenMoko was mentioned near the end of FOSDEM at a Birds of Feather phone development event that was organized ad-hoc on Saturday:

It was focused on Purism as the most recent contender to the title of a free software phone, but the conversation was really about other platforms, as you might guess from the post.

There were people present involved with Purism, Jolla, Postmarket OS, Maemo, Mer, but also Fairphone and Plasma Mobile (sorry about those I forgot). Personally, I regret not meeting any people from Pyra, OpenMoko, ZeroPhone or Replicant, but I hope that at FOSDEM was an anomaly and that the community is not splitting in half :)

Cheers,
rhn
