Do I get you right that your only blocker for continuing with  
development for SailfishOS is not having a phone at hand anymore?

If that is so, please get in touch with Jolla and order a new phone. I  
will sponsor that.

Please also send me a list of Jolla projects you have been working on  
in the past and let me know what your plans for other Jolla-related  
development projects are.

Mike (Debian Developer and Jolla fan)
