I agrea with QG' post , fragmentation caused so many side effects ,
like if noone learn ...

"Why do people say MeeGo is dead?"

"The End is Coming: What do we do next?"

"MeeGo forum? (maemo.org round)"

So far maemo still exists and I guess once meltemi devices will show
up, the community infrastructure will be ready...

But If the community should evolve into something larger  like "mobile
open linux" ("MoOpLi" )
It may be good to consult existing communities like openmoko, mer,
tizen, replicant ?
and try to design something decentralized then future proof etc
I guess elinux wiki could be a good place to bootstrap something

Else It may became just other marketing suicide plan ...

I guess the same questions applies to meego.com
