Good to hear on the webstore progress and the updates in general. Only after reading the feasibility study did I start getting a good idea about exactly how complicated this project is.

I have a couple of questions (apologies if it's the wrong forum, so to speak):

a) Did you look at having an issue tracker to track progress (so that people can get status updates without you having to rewrite the whole thing again in a forum) - Github issues comes to mind as a first suggestion

b) What can (technical-minded) supporters do to help the project currently? The GTA04 just got the 4.0 kernel (on twitter) so I'm guessing mainlining peripherals etc. is not an issue?

c) Was there a poll somewhere about what distro people wanted on the Neo900? I am particularly interested in Ubuntu Touch (and yes, I saw there is now a mailing list for that too).

As far as c) goes... it depends what you mean...
the neo-guys are building it to run...
as far as what distro it'll ship with...it'll be something manageable.
the fptf is working on making sure fremantle works on it.
considering the open hardware....the question now becomes personal...
what os would YOU personally like to run on it?
you mention ubuntu touch...
me..I'm torn.
soooo many possibilities ...

Do you have any plans to offer any extras in the web shop? There are a few things I can think of that I would like to purchase and it would be much easier if I could get them all from one place. I'm thinking of stuff like screen protectors, USB host mode cables (or USB gender benders) but the main thing I would be very interested in buying that's not so easy to get hold of elsewhere would be a serial cable (for debugging boot issues).

Well, no such plans yet. Will see what can get done, for us (the company) it's a loss deal. Anyway don't worry about serial cable, no such thing needed for Neo900. You got UART3 on hackerbus and on IR-UART, and yet the idea is to have console on USB via ttyACM or whatever it was. We might consider offering serial cable kits for HackerBus and for IR<->serial/USB

Quick question.

HackerBus and IR<->serial/USB

Would that make it possible to debug boot?
Iam asking, because I wonder if those ports are exposed that early in boot process...

They both are based on UART3 which is what's commonly used for serial debugging of bootloaders etc, in BeagleBoard and N900 and GTA04. Even ROMBOOT when looking for xloader on serial is using UART3 for that
