[maemo-community] Maemo Elections

It's time for the next Maemo election.  Any community member who has karma
of 100 or more may be nominated for Council or may nominate themselves via
the maemo community mailing list (nominations must also be accepted to nteh
mailing list).  The nomination period will close at 23:59 UTC, Saturday, 31

The voting is preliminarily scheduled to run from 00:00 UTC, Thursday, 5
April to 23:59, Wednesday, 11 April, 2012.  If the community decides to
nominate less than four nominees, then the nominees will be considered to
represent a consensus of the community and there will be no vote.

If there is a need for a vote, each member of maemo.org, who has an account
that is more than 3 months old and who has earned over 10 "karma" points on
that account, gets an electronic ballot.  The election is a "single
transferable vote".  They rank their Council candidates in order of
preference; if their top candidate cannot get elected with the votes they
receive, the votes are redistributed until all council seats have been

Please give serious consideration to nominating people you trust with the
future of maemo.  Nokia funding will end and Nokia cannot commit to handing
over or licensing the website or parts of the infrastructure to the
community.  The current council has decided reorganizing maemo.org is not
feasible for the long term and has started looking into a possible Plan B.
There have also been proposals to bring Harmattan into maemo.org, and to
coordinate with other projects.  It is preferable that the future of maemo
be made by a deliberate decision of the community.  Please help that happen
by nominating and voting for council members of your choice.
