> The Ports (which Devices to support):
>  FSO status:
>  [working] Openmoko GTA01, Openmoko GTA02, Palm Pre (+variants)
>  [work in progress] Goldelico GTA04, Nokia N900, Google Nexus S

>  SHR supports:

> The Stack (SysV Init vs. Systemd / Udev vs. Devtmpfs):
>  * SHR will switch from SysV init to Systemd in the (near) future, to
>    provide a faster and cleaner bootup.
>  * There will probably be a minimal FSO init process, which can be used
>    to bootup a minimal FSO featurephone stack.
>  * We see phones as mostly static devices with fixed use cases, thus we
>    prefer devtmpfs over udev and will use it on all devices running
>    SHR.
>  * Udev will stay in the feeds, so power users who want to use their
>    phone as a mini computer can install it anyways.
>
>
> Stability and Organization:
>  * SHR will make releases in the future
>  * Release will be created from best staging image + feed, but
>    without maintaining release branch.
>  * releases consists of a set of features and/or bug fixes
>  * for testing the new features, staging images are published and
>    tested by developers and the community
>  * developers are working on feature branches which are merged after
>    the work is finished
>  * versions of major components are locked in SHR and updated as
>    features
>
>
> Solved Tasks:
>  * GTA04 support: you can now build SHR-Core images, which are almost
>    working. Still lacking proper power management (kernel) and proper
>    audio routing (fso/alsa) – both are worked on
>  * shr_elm_softkey: fixed a long standing bug which prevented you from
>    closing several applications (ffphonelog, ffalarms, iliwi)
>  * ffalarms: fixed segfault on adding an alarm
>  * trac cleanup: we started to clean up our trac bug database, which
>    included closing a lot of outdated/obsolete bugs.

> Openmoko Community Survey 2011 – please take part!
>  We decided to start a poll about which hardware and which software you
>  use or are interested in these days. The results will help us to
>  focus on relevant hard-/software.
>  Please participate in the survey at Doodle and spread the word about
>  it!
