Re: [gta02-core] gta02-core prototypes: distribution and finances
just a question regarding the svn server:
I cannot access the repository but the server is alive (ping):
mac:gta02-core lothar$ cd ..
mac:Projects lothar$ rm -rf gta02-core/
mac:Projects lothar$ svn co http://svn.openmoko.org/trunk/gta02-core/ svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/trunk/gta02-core'
svn: PROPFIND of '/trunk/gta02-core': Could not resolve hostname
`svn.openmoko.org': Host not found (http://svn.openmoko.org)
Also I had trouble reviewing the schematics on my Mac (missing
symbols) after my last svn update.
Is there another Mac user?

that is available)?
OpenMoko has sold about 10000 pieces. There may be 10000 users at
If each would donate 2 € then the cost would 0 € per piece if it will
cost 1000 €
I would donate more than 2 € :-)
I can't pay for a prototype as my current financial situation, but I
will donate as I likely want to
see this project succeeding (not failing due to lack of money).
So why not issuing a call for donation into the comunity list. They
probably want to see this project
succeeding too :-)

Is there a list of PCB and SMT companies, that are candidates?
I have at least one, but I don't know if it came into the list. And if
