I completely agree and I would like to add: I have a FP3 lying around here. I could
a) offer alpha-testing.
b) “sell” it to you immediately. you could “sell” it back as soon as you are done with the development or as soon as you have your own FP3. Or just keep it, because I could still buy a new one. I was a bit too optimistic when ordering it, because I expected it to be usable (google-free) faster. I won’t use it anyway, until /e/ or lineageOS are supported.
you’re sure it’s an issue? if you order a FP, from FP website it takes always that long, that’s their shipping policy because they avoid to store FPs in their headquarter in Netherlands. But there are some other online shops that ship the FP immediately.
