Default Meego and Navit ? Was Fedora 15, new and exciting plans

I realize that most people on this mailing list are focused on
infrastructure and server/desktop usage.

But some of us are looking forward to using future Fedora releases on
tablets in vehicular infotainment systems.

To this end, what are the plans for releasing Meego as part of Fedora in
F15 ?

It would also be really nice to see Navit make it into Fedora. Its been
"almost there" for a long time (since F10 ?) but somehow it never seems
to make it. Any chance someone out there could give it a boost ?

Thanks
LG

Meego haven't officially released any tablet UX plan yet, we still
need to wait some time.

I'm sorry about that - I put in a review request for it shortly after I
came to RH as at the time I was poking about with running it on my
TinyBook(tm) using my phone as a GPS provider via bluetooth, which was
all fun and shiny, but it never had much serious use potential and
frankly I got bored with it, which is why I didn't work on the package
as hard as I probably should have done. Anyway, someone else has taken
it over now, so hopefully it'll finally get done.

(Presumably, though, Nokia will come up with something for navigation
purposes? They seem fairly big on IVI for Meego and frankly I don't see
them relying on Navit. Of course, whatever they come up with may be
non-F/OSS, I guess.)

They made a maps purchase a while ago which on the n900 is now called
ovi maps (don't remember its original name) but its quite good but
unfortunately not open source. Presumably it might well be used, but
presumably the vendors that use the IVI system are free to user what
ever Nav app they choose.

My impression from MeeGo conference says no. They are going to use MeeGo as just
a platform for proprietary software Maybe I'm wrong but a lot of people from
community feels the same.
