The best answer, IMO, would be to prove by continuing to provide
solutions, software to meet the needs of our end users

I have been quite busy with travelling in Finland, so haven't been
able to do much work, yet.  I have been following:

* the Arduino packaging discussion in their mailing list.
* updated Haskell platform for Chalmers' Lava2000 is available in
rawhide, but, I don't have it yet, or my system with me.
* Haven't heard anything from an intern who wanted to do GTK+
development on DGC GUI.
* Kansas Lava is yet to make a release. Same with GoodFET. I am
awaiting the first release from them.
