I copy below the part of the last council meeting where Matti Arias says
funding will stop in 2012 and not to expect "any financial support" after
2012.  Of course, we also have the 2/11 announcement and the "no future
meego devices" announcement.  For the sake of brevity, I will not go into
all of the previous statements made to maemo council.  Although it has been
said funding will stop sometime in 2012, we remain hopeful that there is a
general change of heart and Nokia will not stop its support of Maemo/MeeGo
after the N9.

It is now mentioned by Bradley Kuhn that Nokia is looking to shut down a
certain software project.

It could be Symbian.  But does such a plan and fate await Maemo//MeeGo?  I
don't think maemo.org should wait for an official announcement.


[11:45] <SD69> is it feasible to continue t.m.o. on a reduced budget?
[11:46] <SD69> lose Akamai, accept slower speeds, etc?
[11:46] <mairas> SD69: after 2012, you mean?
[11:46] <X-Fade> SD69: t.m.o. is one server, owned by reggie.
[11:46] <SD69> I mean after 2012
[11:47] <mairas> SD69: you shouldn't expect any financial support from Nokia
after 2012 :-(
[11:48] <SD69> yes - I am thinking of a reduced community budget
[11:48] <X-Fade> SD69: Expect none, really.
[11:48] <X-Fade> SD69: By that time we need to either come up with funding
ourselves or shut thing down.
[11:49] <SD69> X-Fade: exactly
[11:49] <mairas> again, the amount of traffic is likely to be quite low by
then so it should be perfectly realistic for community to purchase the
server bandwidth themselves
