Resending this to the community since adding external CC addresses caused
it to get held up originally.

Note: a small white line may show up on the Mer graphic.  This is now
corrected in the master.

  After trying various angles on the community outreach flyer and
  processing various viewpoints, I've decided that instead of trying to
  create something that tried to exist somewhere between the maemo.org
  community and Maemo of Nokia, it made sense to focus on a 100%
  community-oriented presentation at least for now.

  So I've stripped off the more explicit Nokia references and culled
  more material from the maemo.org site, with some updates.  I am also
  organizing the flyers into 3 categories:

  Introduction (history of Maemo and maemo.org)

  There will be common themes and some shared text across the flyers
  but each will address a distinct area.

  Again, the goal is to have materials to share at small meetups and
  possibly larger events.  My outreach is slowly growing-- I have
  presented Maemo to an open source enthusiast group in Dallas and have
  begun reaching out to other Dallas groups as well as Austin and
  possibly Houston later.  The focus for now is on open source in
  general, Linux and Python.

  Ultimately, I hope to engage others around the world and work on
  translating flyers into various languages as well as accomodating
  standard paper sizes for regions outside the US (like A4).

  The first flyer (post reboot) I am presenting for consideration is
  for Community, letter sized.
