In short, it would be great to get a list of community projects you
think that Nokia should support in order to have them in excellent
condition and ready for real users the day Maemo 5 is released. By the
end of the month?

We will make a selection from the projects proposed and we will
collaborate with them in the areas they need most in order to be ready
for prime time. This activity will be part of a wider support to
developers targeting the Fremantle release. Peter explained in the Maemo
Summit the basics and we will explain you more as soon as we have a
defined plan.

What criteria to consider to select the projects with big potential? A
basic reference would be
http://wiki.maemo.org/Task:Remarkable_community_projects#Criteria but of
course the bonus comes from unique software squeezing the potential of
Maemo and specifically the new features that Fremantle brings. 

It is a very good chance also to show the potential of non-profit
community collaboration to the users that will know about Maemo 5
without knowing much about Linux or open source. Let's work for that!

Do you think you can come up with that list? Is 3 weeksa reasonable
