Just making sure that you are aware of it. It is easy to give it to
somebody, not so easy to take it back :)

And one day you click on a strange link which gives a script access to
all your mails or your pc gets infected with a virus. Just saying that
information like this should stay on trusted media, now on people's
personal pc. I don't have any copy of maemo.org databases at my
personal systems, I would not dare to have that responsibility.

I'd rather give people access to a closed system where they can
generate the list and mail out the necessary details to voters etc.
