I have promised to look at d-i and the past series of emails truly motivates doing so.

My motivation install.sh is that the outcome is likely to be that we no longer read
something like the neo not being fully functional or that one needs to invest much time to
get the phone running. And it is a means for communication between ourselves about what is
working right/best.

If the idea of the pills is that regular end users should execute them, then I am opposing
the idea. Install.sh should offer a collection of pills readily integrated - only the
right pills. For diversification it is too early, I think. We should decide about what
should available for an end user and then help each other with bug reports to increase

If the pills are yet another means for communication, then of course I don't mind. But
this will then substitute/extend wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Debian, right?

Many greetings
