Re-launching openmoko USB Product ID and Ethernet OUI registry

Some time after Openmoko went out of business, they made available their USB Vendor IDs and IEEE OUI (Ethernet MAC address prefix) available to Open Source Hardware / FOSS projects.

After maintaining that for some years myself, I was unable to find time to continue the work and I had handed it over some time ago to two volunteers. However, as things go, those volunteers also stopped to respond to PID / OUI requests, and we're now launching the third attempt of continuing this service.

As the openmoko.org wiki will soon be moved into an archive of static web pages only, we're also moving the list of allocated PID and OUIs into a git repository.

Since git.openmoko.org is also about to be decommissioned, the repository is now at https://github.com/openmoko/openmoko-usb-oui, next to all the archived openmoko.org repository mirrors.

This also means that in addition to sending an e-mail application for getting an allocation in those ranges, you can now send a pull-request via github.

Thanks to cuvoodoo for volunteering to maintain the Openmoko USB PID and IEEE OUI allocations from now on!
