Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

You shouldn't expect anything at all from the foundation since it's a non-profit busy with lots of other stuff. For now it's up to the QtOnPi community to create useful software and spread the word. Remember this is an initiative from Nokia, not the foundation. I think that my main frustration come...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

By the way, yesterday I talked to my company partner and we decided to not do any port of our QT-based stuff to the R-Pi because of all the delay and so on. Just wanted to write an email today, to get myself erased from the Qt-on-Pi community, when I saw Eben's post. Hmm, came in the last minute fo...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

Thanks to the Qt community for your continued patience. We know it's been a long wait, but we hope you'll find it to have been worth it. Hi Eben, I guess you know that when we were promised to get the boards from the initial 10k batch everybody was excited and very keen to hop on the raspberry pi t...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

A quick update on where we're at with fulfillment of the QtOnPi units: We are in the process of collating the 400-odd emails to the qtonpi email alias, and verifying them against the voucher list. Element14 have kindly agreed to handle fulfillment for us; we will pass the collated list to them in t...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

Free stuff is nice, even if it's a bit late. Yeah, I see what you mean: Instead of letting you pay to enter the good party right away they give you a free ticket for the boring event on the next day (a Sunday night). But no worries, let's all do some proper warm up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o...

Yeah, but for me it is not about the price, it is about broken promises for an access to 1st row.

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

The whole QtonPi idea is quite nice, with 400 boards being sponsored for basically 400 different open-source projects, and Nokia certainly deserves some respect for setting this up. And the unique thing on this was that all of them are professionals and engineers in the own field of knowledge. So e...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

As a total know-nothing outsider to this project, what does strike me as curious glancing through this thread is why so many as 400 boards would be needed. Here are all the pending showcase projects: http://qt-project.org/wiki/QtonPi-Accepted/ When so many potential Pi users are desperate to get th...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

For sure this has not been handled very well. I think actually most of us are not complaining about receiving a board a bit sooner or later than others, but more about the policy of not keeping us updated with reliable information. I couldn't agree more.. :geek: This is only speculation, but I thin...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

I would be really happy if somebody from RPi would reply officially that they even know this issue and that they are working on this. Nor that our order emails has been received and acknowledged by somebody. Although I would be happy also to hear that we are not going to receive any boards, as then...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

You mentioned later on that you had some dialog in some e-mails but "nothing when forward" what did those e-mails say the hold up was? I mean did they make it clear if the hold up was on the RPF's end, or has the hold up been nokia, or RS or Farnell? Seems like their responses are some fairly vital...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

Er. All of you are logging onto the forum for the first time in May! I've no idea who/where you have been contacting but I am sure a quick PM to Liz or another of the team a few months ago and this could have been sorted out. Most of them are on here daily; some of them obsessively so, so I would e...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

As a matter of curiosity. The is a QtonPi distro on the downloads page. Is this not yours? Yeah.. that is also one of the big frustrations among all.. We kind of should be developing it, but we have been and still are out of hardware. At least I do know anybody with RPi hardware on QtOnPi project. ...

Re: No need for the QtOnPi community?

Did you not think of contacting them direct some time ago rather than air your dirty linen in public now? It should not be either an issue to handle feedback in an open source way. And as there are 400 other people waiting for their devices, maybe only a single forum topic is a lot easier to handle...

No need for the QtOnPi community?

Dear Raspberry Pi foundation, I am one of the people (speaking only on my own behalf) in the QtOnPI Device Programme [2], which promised to deliver a device for development purposes from the first batch. We have been pending our devices since last December. And I need to describe my frustration that...
