Hi Nico,

I agree with you, this is also not my intention. I will add more info to 
the document and send a update. Just already remember this:

1. I am not going to do forking.
2. I am working with upstream to get things done.

I am gong to combine and compress documentation, marketing, and support 
to specific project documentation for UMPC alike devices.

Is some of you guys goings to fossdem 2008, maybe we can meet?

Kind regards,
