Pyra needs help by kernel and low-level ARM/OMAP experts
I just read this post by Pyra project leader Michael Mrozek
a.k.a. "Evil Dragon".
(Pyra is planned to be a Debian based gaming console, successor
of OpenPandora. See https://pyra-handheld.com/)
They need help by kernel devs and folks who know OMAP etc.
Maybe somebody here can help them?
There even might be some money in it. No doubt about fame and
