Project Ara ( ProjectAra ) was a very exciting concept and project when announced by Google.  It appeared that the project was going to develop a modular mobile phone.  see history here.  The announcements seemed to suggest that ProjectAra would be attentive to small developers ; that PA would honor the spirit of OpenIP ; that PA would use the suggestions of many enthusiasts to improve the design of the phone  see IPPP .

Openess has not occurred.  Sharing has been minimal.

I don't mean to be extremely critical.  An opportunity for Google to be exceptional has been missed.
