Rodney, three questions about that:

The Fairphone 2 is, AFAIK, a 32-bit device. What will be shown at MWC,
announced by Canonical, will this be snap or click based?

The word 'image' for the thing the Community could build, hides some
fundamental detail: At the moment we need some Android kernel parts to
control the hardware of the mobile device. Do you really think that
there will be other images apart of the 'officially supported images' in
the near future?

Why Canonical is not supporting the existing BQ E4.5 and E5 devices with
a new officially supported image and why you leave us alone (apart of security updates)
and without any visible upgrade path, not even to a new hardware?
