OK, but I'd like to keep "Improvements in apps infra at maemo.org or the
evolution of COBS" as one of the activities.

I'd like to know if the timeline can be relaxed a bit, and also the number
of devices.  The Competition has a clear process (although it could be
tweaked), and maemo.org can handle prizes for contributors.  I'm not sure
how Nokia Store & Qt5 would work, but what help would you want from
maemo.org community for those - just to promote?
