[maemo-community] Election announcement article (formatting & questions)

This thread makes me sad.

I really feel addressed as the primary person behind the "some people"
comments made here; I am being accused of wanting to shut maemo.org down, of
wanting to burn the maemo house down behind me, etc.

I really want to stress again, as I have on T.M.O., that I have had a long
and happy relationship with Maemo and maemo.org, and I don't want to shut,
wind or burn anything down.

I don't believe that a referendum at this point is a good idea. There is
still a year and a half on the clock before Nokia will decide whether or not
to continue funding for Maemo infrastructure. The community will be much
different in a year, and I think those who are still around at that point
should be the ones to decide what to do about maemo.org.

Just because someone does not agree with your particular ideas about how to
organize the community, does not mean that they are opposed to the community
in general. My opinion that it isn't yet time to have this referendum does
not mean that I want the community to die. I stand opposed to this
referendum at this time, not to the community.
