First of all many thanks to all of you who have sent us comments. I am
going to collect and add them to our feature request/bug tracker at
garage.maemo.org [1].
We are going to start phase 2 of the site development activities
pretty soon. One item on the agenda is to study how could we automate
the catalog updating from the extras repositories. I don't know if
there will a remote API or not, this has not been decided, but the
idea is good. Especially if we think about other than the maemo extras
The current phase 2 plan will be added to garage this weekend, ie.
tonight or tomorrow.
