Anyone following this? I'm not finding much. There is Plasma/Active/Installation , but not much listed there.

I'm going to give it a try some time. Buying a cheap used Nexus7 might be best for that. Not sure if work has begun yet on Gentoo ebuilds.

I was hoping it was farther along than it appears, at least as far as "support" is concerned (that is, devs trying to put it on common devices).

Well, the first attempt to bring it to market was spoiled by an unreliable Chinese manufacturer who changed specs right before release.

As a consequence, they designed their own open hardware with interchangeable PCB modules. Right now they have prototypes ready...

Thanks. That's actually the link I meant to put in my first post. (I had already closed tabs for that site, and when I went back to find the page, I was thinking the 'installation' page was the one I wanted.)
