Done,
distortion on speaker  on ben nanonote project
added comment on power off issue
Zimreader issue on openwrt-packages
vido isue on vido project

I have doubts on where to report the gtkperf isues, on ben-nanonote?

Agree, but please don't consider the only blocking factor to mark the
release as production ready
I beleveve there are some other concerns that had to be considered to
qualify software ready to final user.

All soft installed by default must work, if some soft doen't work out
of the box please don't include it,

Easy updates, to no need to reflash on each release. or if reflash is
unavoidable include  a backup/restore data/packages installed from
repos after reflashing in the reflashing script.

Some stetical  work has to be done(boot up logo,  to make first boot
experience sweet for non hacker costumers (the wider audience)  there
is a gtk-launcher in progress I remember, If there is some code to
work on I will like to take a look and help in whatever possible,
Please hackers, dont start a flame war here, I love console too and
surely in some case uses I will disable this launcher to not start up
on boot, but a graphical frontend is needed to make it eyecandy to non
hackers, advanced users, or whatever name you give to people using
computers in a proper way :P

I consider this two ones a must to launch product to market, the
following is a quite good enhancement to at least write it down

Easy (even more) reflashing (aka ease USB-boot, on this release
power+U works, GOOD!! but to leave that state you have to  disconnect
and remove battery, is technically possible to restart device using
reset, power, or key combination?)

I will hear your opinions on this before put any ticket on track
sistem, wiki or whatever place you  think it has to be writed (or not)

Again thanks for the fun :)
