'Mr Wookey' is fine, albeit unusually formal for free software circles :-)

I have no idea either. I was a little surprised that the ofono
codebase lives at kernel.org, which seems unexpected. Paul knows
everybody so may be better placed than me to make some relevant
contacts, but I don't mind blundering in and seeing if I can get
someone to take pity on you and unbung this situation. However I do
have deadlines right now so it'll be next week before I can find some
time to try and work out who to pester. Very happy if someone beats me
to it.
