I'm still an n900 user and pleased to see work on keeping it updated.
I've not done anything towards that myself yet.

Re newer hardware - what is the utility of FSO on something like this
apparently quite open tablet: https://zareason.com/shop/ZaTab-ZT2.html

Presumably it does a reasonable job of dealing with the 'no keyboard'
issue? I have a real need for a tablet open enough to run real linux on,
but still actually use but I'm not sure if debian contains the right UI
elements? That's a project I'd spend some time on this year if it looks
feasible.
