All,

PdaXrom 2.0 developement will be on hold until further notice. pdaXrom is working on taking an alternate path of development for the future. We will keep everyone up-to-date with any progress that is made once everything becomes official.

Thanks

Ouch, this hurts!
Well, first I have to show my admiration for all of you that have kept (and I hope will keep) pdaXrom running. I understand how big task is it.
I should say that the zaurus is a kind of "travel laptop" for me, a laptop I can carry in my pocket. I don't use it as a PDA, I already have a pdaphone that I use for all my PIN needs, I use the zaurus as a pocket unix machine, this makes it unique.
Looking at the future I think it would be a very good idea having Angstrom as the base for the a new pdaXrom, there are advantages:
-- They provide a very good, clean and clear build system, why don't use it?
-- They write kernel code and add functionality, I suppose that if something different is needed for pdaXrom, it is easier to add only that functionality than trying to put together 150 patches and trying to make some sense from them...

Basically pdaXrom would build an easy to use system over the (strong) shoulders of Angstrom (look at how well Ubuntu stands on the shoulders of Debian).

Maybe pdaXrom need more contributers as well, here I can speak in my own name: I've been trying to contribute since I bought my zaurus in Akihabara more than 2 years ago, but I have a very big problem, my time. I am sure this is a problem pdaXrom devs have as well, but I cannot make it better.That does not mean I cannot contribute: I can do small things in the short periods I have some free time, and I think there are many people like me.
Maybe it would be a good idea to have the problems listed in one place, broken down in very small, self contained pieces, with some kind of difficulty scoring (difficult, average, easy) and a "tutor", somebody who knows how to solve it and give hints of how to do it. People could take the piece they want, ask to the tutors if they have any problem, solve it and commit afterwards.... learning in the process as well. This way you can "morph" a tecchy Angstrom in a more friendly pdaXTrom...

I don't know, I just wanted to be useful.
