[maemo-community] maemo.org team meeting Tuesday the 14th?

From: Gary Birkett liquid at gmail.com

how about we stop having discussions about meetings and actually decide to
try to work together for our users?

something each of us can work well towards.
there does seem like there are resources available and people to do things.
what is lacking however is one thing specific and concrete for everyone to
pull together and work towards.

Maemo used to have organic flexibility and the ability to both react and
innovate to new challenges and it seems to have all but bricked up the store
and given up.

We have a community who are day in day out creating new innovative
applications for our devices and we have had just ~ 30% INCREASE in
downloads this month alone  (from 20 to 28million!).

More applications are coming and each generation builds on the last, so
getting new clean good quality applications onto maemo.org gets easier day
by day.

This helps Meego in the long run because some of those applications are Qt
based and getting them tested and validated to the high maemo.org standards
will put them into good stead to be usable on meego.

I sent Dave a mail a couple of days ago, regarding something concrete
deliverable and potentially great for everyone involved (the community
especially), if he thinks its worthwhile perhaps it can be opened up for
wider discussion.
