There is still al link on the Downloads page wich refers this as "the
actual stable release" but the link is broken. Actually i got my
freerunner since a week and i must say that our wiki wasnt such a big
help, since it should be declared clearer what i can expect from wich
release. In the table 2008.8 has a unstable flag at wifi and gprs but
thats not true, it simply doesnt work. Im on Debian now, not handy but
it works. And by the way, i didnt find a way to fire a bug so this could
be explained, too.

best regards and thx,
paul kremser

Thanks for reporting the stale link. I think that you refer to the page:
where it is written:
If you plan to update your distribution, you may as well flash directly from: Om2008-stable (Om2008.8-update).
I removed that sentence, so consider it fixed.

Regarding the table where 2008.8 is improperly flagged, I think you mean http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Distributions ? Then I would suggest to leave as it is, it's hard to prove that something cannot work and the whole 2008.8 column is obsolete anyway.

There is NO place to file bugs for the wiki because it is supposed to be faster to fix what is wrong than to file a bug. But our wiki improvements are discussed at https://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/documentation , please join us for further comments (it's rather low traffic, ~3 messages/day). Having a procedure to check for stale links would be a good idea, but so far nobody volunteered.

Does this replies your concerns ?

Yours, Minh
