Raspberry Pi will be available soon and I'm sure I'm not the only one who already placed an order. According to its specification it is a good target for TC and also price is reasonable even if it is slighltly above the annoinced $35. Another good point wide availability (hopefully) and the unified platform, no segmentation according to different hardware.
It is the time now to start a project for Raspberry Pi to show that there is a life over the 1.8GByte Debian. I'm ready to participate but it must be a team work. Also would be good to do it officially as part of the TC development (there is already an ARM directory at the ibiblio server )
What is the view of TC Core Development Team and of course other community members?
Please count me in, for what I'm worth.
What is happening with Raspberry and collapsing prices on arm SoCs is impressive: also look at Allwinner A10, which is candidate to power devices even more open than Raspberry itself, and maybe cheaper in the long run:http://rhombus-tech.net/allwinner_a10/http://limadriver.org/
The Mele A1000 this morning has been briefly available on aliexpress for 60$:http://www.mele.cn/en/web/pro_show.aspx?cid=46&pid=60
This makes it an early competitor for Raspberry Pi.
I was pissed off for not getting a RaspberryPi Model B this morning at 7am (by the way, it looks like they will manage to fit 256Mb ram even on the cheaper A model, which mitigates the delusion for having to wait), and so I bought an Allwinner-based tablet at 100euro:http://www.aliexpress.com/product-gs/506135830-Ainol-Novo7-ELF-android-4-0-tablet-pc-capacitive-IPS-8GB-MID-wholesalers.html
I am willing to do tests on it, or whatever could be useful.
One problem is the lack of backward compatibility between Arm families. I don't know how this is managed on other distros.
Finally: Bmarkus, are you joking about a supposed arm directory living on ibiblio?
