Maybe you could publish a bazaar branch somewhere. You can either just
share it on you website, or push it to launchpad. That way I can
easily checkout the changes and merge them back into trunk when
appropriate. Also this should allow you to keep track and merge
upstream changes relatively painlessly.

I would be happy to support maemo in the main code base. But would
need to study the details to see if there are any conflicts with
functionality on other platforms.



P.S. your screenshots look really cool -- would like to have those on
the main website at some point :)
