So how many people are interested in a Uno and how many are interested in a Uno + starter bread board etc? How many people just want to bread board some kind of clone?
Personally I just want a Uno.

Yeah, haven't looked into building them since Duemivilla had just come out. Sourcing parts for a Uno (current Version) is a bitch. All the chips are on back order for 3 weeks and have ~2000 min quantity purchases to guarantee you get anything. What a pain. The price was looking good too, parts would have been ~$10. Even if the boards cost $20/each from a board shop still would have been competitive with the best of them.
Could just do a group buy http://ca.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Arduino/A000046/?qs=tbM5a8K56PWjTWNNmbdzWg%3d%3d
. Plus get some bread boards, leds, etc. for those that want them. Wouldn't be hard to source the extra stuff in the starter kits for those that want it and if people have projects in mind the starter kits could be customized.
