Thanks for your efforts. I'm very sorry for the long delay.
Do you still need the hosting capabilities? Please let me know.
If the project is still running, I'm going to approve it.

A new project has been registered at Savannah
This project account will remain inactive until a site admin approves or discards the registration.

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

Registration Details

  • Name: Magnus
  • System Name: magnus
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later (Software components of this project will be GPLv3+ (except possibly for a few components, where it would be incompatible with existing dependencies).

Any associated schematics, diagrams and documentation may have a different free license TBA.)


Mobile Applications for the GNU System

This project aims to enable users to perform mobile applications on a completely free system. Applications include, but are not limited to mobile phone calls, ebook reading and navigation system capabilities. Since a suitable mobile device free from proprietary restrictions is not available, one will be built from the ground up. Thus, this project is both a hardware and a software project.

Other Software Required:

Will probably use the Linux kernel or a version of it, libc and lots of other existing software.

Other Comments:

This is currently a "concept only" project. No code exists. Although others have work which they have indicated they'd be willing to contribute.
