Infact, at that time in January we had already received the stuff from
Nokia and we realized we had a problem.  The solution we elaborated was
to keep the n800 available only for developers.  We chose to *trust* the
Fellows that declared to be *able* and *willing* to fix the freedom

It is clear now that not only the solution was suboptimal but also it
was communicated poorly.  

I can reassure that measures are being taken to prevent this problem
from happening again next year: we are changing the process and
establish more control and double-check points along it.  If you give me
some time I promise I will publish the process publicly for comments.

Thank you
