[maemo-community] Moblin + Maemo = MeeGo. Impact on Council?

	1. The council maybe a moot point; especially since based on what
I've read Nokia didn't bother to even inform the council of the coming
changes.  How can Nokia profess to be all about the community when it
totally left the entire community and the council out of everything?   

	2. Other than Intel & Nokia who else is part of the MeeGo group?

Tabula rasa.  :)

There are some questions that you should ask yourselves. Thing of MeeGo as
the Maemo many of you wanted: completely free operating system running on
many kinds of devices from Nokia and others.

The nature and purpose of the Council changes in such context:

- There is no single company owning a stack to interact with. Nokia is now
*really* a community member. A big one, but not the single provider it was
in the Maemo context. What is the role of an elected community council in a
context of working groups and technical steering committee? Don't expect an
answer from "MeeGo". If you want to have a place in MeeGo then you are MeeGo
as well, and such answer must come from you in the first place.

- What is actually the scope of the Maemo community? Developers only? Plus
free software enthusiasts? Or also pure end users? Try to imagine the MeeGo
community the day we have several devices and a bunch of free and commercial
applications out there. Who will the community council represent? Who do you
will to represent? Who makes the MeeGo community you wish?

- Who can vote? Who can be elected? Do you want to move the karma system
forward to MeeGo? It has been a while since we start it in maemo.org. Time
for a revision? What is good, what is bad about it? Again, don't expect the
MeeGo technical steering group to come up with an answer. The proposal comes
from you in the first place.
