I'm not sure how the ZUG community feels about this but I just received word that the Sharp Developers Site should be up and functioning again sometime next week.

More like 6 months. I don't know how Sharp expects us to react. I mean they can't offer us anything. Developers are wise man, they won't be fooled again. Revision control systems, peer review, package repositores and real developer support are already out there in a much better quality than anything Sharp can do.

Yeah, they _could_ honor all the hours of unpaid work from us and donate us hardware, but alas, they don't give a damn about the open source community and they won't do that.

They also _could_ start opening their closed source Qtopia fork to support us, but I don't believe that will happen either.

Oh and they _could_ start caring about kernel mainstream and talk with the arm-linux authorities in getting their outdated kernel and their low-quality patches up to par. But why should they do that when things run "good enough to sell them" ?

I consider sharp starting with yet another forum or an oss site like sf.net etc. as added fragmentation. Not with me, thanks.

I suspect rather trying to (mis)use the community as support team for their corporate models (read 6000).

One of those things we just "blech" at. If the customers wish to become a part of the community (read: join the ZUG), then we'll support them. But if Sharp tries to misuse us, then let's not stand for it. ZUG is far better anyways. tongue.gif
