Re: Questions about the openblocks AX3/4

Mr. Leighton, 

We're so glad hear your offer! I appreciate to contact to Mr. Steve.

Just yesterday I heard that the other staff in our company is preparing
to provide our product to Build team (Philip kern), ARM team (Hector
Oron), Donation team (Hector Oron) on your cummunity. I heard it'll be a
donation, thus I also might be able to prepare OpenBlocks as a donation
to you or Steve.

Incidentally, the another plan of donation is proceeded with Mr.
Nobuhiro Iwamatsu in Japan (not our staff.) My coleague is communicating
with Philip and Hector via Mr. Iwamatsu.

As I claimed yesterday we are very positive to help debian-ARM community
and other developers, with our product. I'm so happy to hear your
appreciation to OpenBlocks AX3 on your email.

AX3 is also really reliable and it will work very well on the project
for sure :)

I'm looking forward to hearing from you all.

Sincerely yours,

Tomomi Matsumoto
