I still support GPE on chinook and I build new releases for both chinook and 
diablo (as well as mistral and bora).  It has been over a year since I last 
released GPE (although my daily builds repository builds against chinook each 
night) -- but I am planning to do so again soon (with several bug fixes 
discovered during the Fremantle work).

But I don't know how many chinook users there are left out there -- at one 
time there were several who claimed that diablo introduced problems and they 
reverted back to chinook.

It may be worth a note to maemo-users explaining that this is happening and 
that although chinook users will still be able to install apps from their 
repository, there will be no new apps or updates.  If there is a chorus of 
dissent you could reconsider.

I would object, however, if the archived repositories (including the SDK) were 
taken offline -- I would like to ability to build against chinook if I really 
had to.
