Hi all,
we (OpenPhoenux community Munich) are organizing a kernel- and user-space
hacking weekend to improve the Letux/GTA04 kernel and to make progress on
matching QtMoko with newer kernels and latest Debian.

This workshop is planned to have two groups:

a) Kernel - to work on the known (and new) issues [1], mainly power management,
but also others (e.g. Camera, Audio for GSM/FM/Bluetooth). The idea is to close
as many issues as possible.

b) QtMoko [2] - update the basis to Debian Jessie, make it compile,
add fixes so that we can use the latest kernels, make new packages.

The workshop location will be in Munich (Germany) area (details to be defined).
Date is also to be defined so that it fits for the participants, but the target is some
Saturday+Sunday in spring 2016.

We have a budget to support travel expenses.

Participation will be limited in the total number of people. I think a good group
size will be ca. 5 developers each. More is not productive and less is not enough
breadth of different experience.

If you think you can and want to participate and actively contribute, please apply
by a short mail to me, telling what you want to do and which expertise you have
and if you need support with travel expenses.

If you don't, but know somebody who could be interested and helpful, please
forward this e-mail.

Let's hope this helps to bring our community forward and fix some issues we
want to see solved for a long time.

BR and thanks,
