Just a small note to everyone - it might be not obvious, but IMHO the next
Council term is THE term that will determine how the Maemo <-> MeeGo
community relations will be, as this will be the term that will see the
1.1 release, the Maemo Summit replacement (-> MeeGo Conference), and also
covers 2010H2 which was announced as the tentative timing for the first
MeeGo-Harmattan device (=new users, new developers !).

I feel many take maemo.org for granted, the stuff in Extras and all the
infrastructure that ticks in the background - which gets noticed only if it
misbehaves. If there is to be a solid bridge between maemo.org (with Extras
and all) and MeeGo Extras and community repositories, this is the time to
fight/work for it. Nokia cannot do this *instead* of the community - it will
to take it's fate into it's own hands - and that's something the Council
and should do as a legitimately elected representative body.

Some of you might have already noticed Council activites on MeeGo lists
pertaining this, and sure enough, I think the people in the next term will
to spend at least as much time in meego.com as they do on maemo.org.
That is the only way we can maintain at least some forms of
continuity/migration and avoid the slow death of the maemo.org
community (yes, if you are a user, that includes the fate of your N900,

Best regards,
