FPTF is about 3 things:
Firstly its about cloning those bits of the system that talk to the hardware where possible and finding ways to make the blobs work on the new hardware.(e.g. the recent work to clone MCE will help here as MCE does a lot of hardware interaction)
Secondly its about cloning those things that have limitations and bugs that prevent the software from being all that it can be for the benefit of both N900 and Neo900 users. And thirdly its about kernel work to make things keep functioning correctly even when cloning is not possible (as is likely to be the case with parts of the audio subsystem)

with regards to browser, microb patches didn't apply cleanly to FF7/8 (can't remember what i looked into). the changes required were not that bad, some line numbers were a bit off, extra nested if statement, renamed variables. a bit of searching and they could mostly be worked out. some are just patches for branding, others added hildon message boxes, tuning etc. alopex may have already done most of this for a more recent version of engine.

browserd and/or some other components already have replacements. UI is still closed AFAIK so bug fixes there would require a replacement, but as a stop gap it could just be used as is for now, as long as it works with recent api.

http://browser.garage.maemo.org/docs/pics/scheme.png - this picture got me thinking (source: http://browser.garage.maemo.org/docs/browser_paper.html ), wouldn't "freeing" the EAL-layer make us able to use basically any browser engine? I see browser-eal, browser-neteal and microb-eal packages in my device... I'll have a look at their features once I finish playing with FF compilation

Hi! I'm a code monkey with experience in programming microcontrollers, adding real-time extensions to the Linux kernel, and most recently RF simulation and modelling in C++ (the day job). I'm also a fair to middling system administrator (run my own email and web server for personal purposes).

I'm really short on free time these days (other extracurricular activities eat most of my time), but I would love to help in any way I can.

I got the info on the IRC channel, but due to being at work, I can't really justify getting on right now; perhaps later tonight.

Looks like I wont be able to devote the time to FPTF that I thought I would be able to. I am moving house to the other side of the country (4000+KMs away) and dont know when I will be in a position to do any N900 work (Neo900 or otherwise). Depending on circumstances, I may also be getting rid of my current Linux box (old Pentium 4) rather than paying the really high costs to move it (which would leave me without an N900 dev system)

sound and cameras still do not work, vibra and accelerometer do not work too (mce needs some tweaking for the vibra and accelerometer), as is portrait mode, everything else is pretty much ok
