Just made my way to this thread finally...
I agree rzr...
good idea...
If any are interested in collating this comprehensive n8x0 walkthrough and putting it into the "how to " section...
by all means...please do so.

If / when I get any spare moments to work on anything...
It should be to knuckle down and mobilize a n8x0 task force of diehard members who still remain ..
(and for the bunch of us to do what I believe is the last ...and most crucial bit of work truly needed)
And try to herd the many disparate and rogue apps and repositories
(the lengthy list found here http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...25&postcount=4 )
and get them under the umbrella of the maemo extras, testing and dev repos ....to safeguard them from the eventual oblivion of being left out ...unprotected ...relegated to eventual oblivion ..if nothing is done... (and all that work lost would / will be a horrendous loss and waste...)

So this is the initial "Call Out" for n8x0 users / members who would be interested in helping collate these disparate apps and repos and get them into the maemo repos proper.

I don't expect or anticipate this to be a job accomplished overnight...
There is a lot to save .
And natch. people have lives to live.

but I do know the benefit to those who are interested... will find it uniquely enjoyable sifting through so many great programs...
and will quite quickly understand the importance of saving these gems from oblivion.

I think for the time being...the initial place of discussion on how to tackle this (highly overdue) "rescue operation" should occur in this thread

http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php...ight=gronmayer

Looking forward to seeing a few people show...
throw ideas around on what angle of approach to take on this venture...
and then slowly get our collective crap together and implement (just thought it up on the spot here... )
what I am going to call...
"Operation: Save Alexandria"
(I think aptly named after the greatest library that ever existed....sure it burned ...but this one doesn't have to... )

See ya there fellow n8x0 maemites!
