COBS people are X-Fade, javispedro, timoph, lbt (to some extent).  I
suggest joining their meeting rather than asking them to check in with
available times for a new meeting.

On community awards, there is a history of council awarding themselves
maemo conference sponsorships, etc.  I don't see device awards as much
different (except that device should not be given to somebody who already
has one).  QGil has already indicated on the forum I believe that the
community can decide how to do community awards.
