Not to say it's not a great thing (it is), but "fully open" is quite brave to say usually. I generally expect / wait that fully open devices (software-wise) will eventually get alternative free operating systems running on it - so, looking forward to having Debian, Gentoo etc. running as the only operating system on Android dev phones without sacrificing hw features. Maybe Android VM + UI being packaged for other distributions on top of GNU libc, and maybe even FreeSmartphone.Org stack for Android hw platforms with some glue so that SHR & Paroli would work for the phone UI... etc. etc.
So my question is that is there a community site / portal available for any of this kind of stuff, or are the efforts still mostly on utilizing the Google's Android software? Usually when I run into Android pages everyone expects the Android hw to run Android sw and maybe something else only in chroot, but I am generally not too keen on own C library implementations and all that stuff related to the Android software.
Anyway, it's great to have continuation for the dev phones series, since the other Android phones are quite closed.
