[maemo-community] Council nomination: Attila Csipa

It seems that it is becoming a tradition that most nominations turn up on
the last day. I was almost getting worried that the dreaded alternative
clauses of lack of interest might be invoked, but, just like last term, in
the end it seems that there is a very good 'offer' to the community. My view
of the importance of the next term have already been summarized in
but I would like to emphasize once more - barring the financials, it's up to
the community where (and in what form) maemo.org will or will not go - and
there is no better representative than the Community Council to have a
legitimate representation. That's why I would like to see people with a
can-do approach on the Council, trying to solve/deal with hot and not too
pleasant topics (and I feel the next term will not be in short supply).
Remember, anyone can rant, but it takes a special kind of talent to turn
discontent into constructive action, and I'm glad the list of candidates is
in no shortage of such folks. I must note that recently there were a lot of
question of what a Council's role really is - something I wrote about at
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=782684 so I would really like if
things like this get a bit more visibility during the candidate
question/grilling part so these things become more apparent to people who
only recently became eligible voters - the future Council won't be able to
bring a new Flash 10 to our N900s any more or less than the current one can.
Personally - apart from responding to any 'routine' formal candidate
questionnaires - I plan on blogging (as promised) a retrospection on what
issues the current Council encountered, how it dealt with it and what was
achieved (an example of which is
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=784034). I must say I thought quite a
bit whether I should accept the nomination or not, considering my
professional interests, but in the end I think that the community itself is
the best judge to say l whether what I do/did benefits it and if it requires
my services for a second term or not. Thus, to formally round the number of
candidates to 10:

I accept the nomination. Also, as per Council nomination rules I'm stating
that I'm currently working at Forum Nokia in a developer support/consultancy
