Archive : : Announcement concerning the Genesi/Phoenix collaboration
Posted By: Targhan. on 2003/3/5 10:08:02
In a joint statement, Raquel Velasco, Bill Buck, and greenboy clarify some outstanding issues about the future of Genesi, the role of Phoenix, and the DTV set-top-box.

Further, they are expressing their desire to bring more developers on board.

We are very pleased how with how the Phoenix/Genesi relationship is developing. Genesi is in the process of formally organizing itself into two distinct activities:

1. One to support the task oriented objectives focused on the delivery of the DTV STB by the end of 2003.

During the month of March Genesi will transition existing consulting/ employment agreements to the new structure. A list of well known Developers in the "Community" will be joining Genesi. These individuals will be almost exclusively focused on the DTV STB project.

2. The Future of the Pegasos and MorphOS, including the release of the Pegasos II using the Marvell northbridge.

The difficulties with the Articia have delayed the Pegasos long enough. The Pegasos II development has begun and WILL be completed sooner than expected.

Genesi will operate from offices in Luxembourg, France, and Germany with a branch office in Switzerland. "Virtual" offices will also operate in the USA and the UK. An extensive Internet sales and support infrastructure is being implemented.

Genesi and Phoenix are seeking collaborators in nearly every area. Here is a full list of Phoenix mailing lists that are now devoted to Genesi development:

Phoenix@phinixi.com - general discussion and internal announcements
PhAnn@phinixi.com - newsfeed to broadcast announcements to outside news sites and forums
PhrojectOS@phinixi.com - Open Source community with an emphasis on porting and supporting Open Source work


These are moderated by greenboy and open to all interested parties who meet Phoenix's expanded definition of DEVELOPER: coders, web designers and publishers, financiers, beta testers, translators, arts and media specialists, etc.

Then:

PhAppTeam@phinixi.com - applications (Chairman: Felix Schwarz)
PhDemoScene@phinixi.com - demo scene (Chairman: Mikko Virtanen)
PhGameTeam@phinixi.com - games for DTV STB (Chairman: Thomas Steiding)
PhReseller@phinixi.com - distributors/resellers (Chairman: Adam Carrano, Christophe Decanini)
PhWeb@phinixi.com - Phoenix website design and maintenance
(Webmaster: Gary Cunningham-Lee, Admin: greenboy, with support from Genesi WebDev Team Leader Damien McKenna)


Lists we are considering:

PhGames@phinixi.com - games for Pegasos on the desktop
PhREBOL@phinixi.com - should Rebol be part of the platform?
PhDigAudio@phinixi.com - to ramp up what Nicholas Blachford's MORloud started. Note: Genesi has licensed ProStation Audio for MorphOS from Maurizio Ciccione of AudioLabs. ProStation Audio will be bundled with the OS.
PhVideo@phinixi.com - from here the videomicrowave will take off. It begins with MediaPoint, and scales into a special IOSPIRIT offering - along with many other goodies being planned and soon to come.

All requests to join Phoenix/Genesi mail lists are welcome! - just send email with a brief bio/CV to greenboy@phinixi.com

    What is missing is a *hardware development* mailing list. Whether its repackaging the Pegasos in a new hardware form, or making exercise mats that plug-into the Pegasos...
