[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] End-user roadmap?

I'm wondering what the plans for Maemo and the 770 are:

In April we had the Maemo 2.0 roadmap[1], which was development
environment and technology focussed.

When the 770 was launched (11 months ago) it was with the knowledge
that 2006 OS was coming. And it came.

But where to now?

Sardine is a lovely effort, albeit a little smelly according to #maemo.

There haven't been any bug fix releases of 2006 OS in the last three
months (compare with the  first few months of 2005 OS!) There's a
vague mention of 2007 OS in a Bugzilla comment[2], but no visible
progress on user reported bugs being knocked off.

What's the future with the 770? Is it worth us investing our time in
it, if it is being abandoned by Nokia? Can I encourage new end-users
to buy one if the software's going to stay in the currently rather
unstable state?[3]

If nothing else (and I understand why future hardware products
wouldn't be announced) In the short term, when's the next release
planned, whether that's a 2006 OS bug fix or whatever's planned for
Sardine. What *is* the plan for stabilising Sardine (and the other
stuff which is (hopefully) changing outside of Sardine) and releasing
a new version for end users?

Thanks in advance,
