So I'm buying a neo next week and aside from a few older posts on the the
developer list where I see folks asking about how to send commands to the
hammerhead part, I don't really know what the status is of the GPS software.

I'm a bit of an embedded/GPS geek so I figured fixing this bug would be a good
quasiuseful way for me to get familar with the existing source base.
From browsing the public website it seems that you've forked gpsd into a
semicustom daemon called agpsd. However, when I look in subversion I see
nothing in http://svn.openmoko.org/trunk/src/target/agpsd/. Should I be looking
somewhere else?

I've just started a MokoMakefile? build, so perhaps agpsd sources will be fetched
from somewhere else.

If I'm working on this bug, should I claim it as assigned, or would you rather
an unknown external developer such as me just leave it as New until I'm ready to
attach a patch?

the gps daemon we're using is the standard gpsd (hosted at berlios).

The input to it is provided by (really sorry about this, we've inherited that
from FIC) a binary-only daemon called "gllin". this gllin performs the features
that are usually performed by the firmware inside the GPS chip.

There is no sourcecode for this gllin available. We are working on a solution to
this problem in GTA02.
