I don't fully agree with this, Nokia isn't doing so bad IMO. First the
$99 campaign was a smart move to start up a community. The maemo.org
and garage are great infrastructures for developers. Scratchbox simply
rocks IMHO. And @nokia.com is often one of the answering ones on this

May I humbly suggest that not only the haf is important, but also the
community applications may need some more attention. New releases from
Nokia almost looks like calling processEvents() on the community, apps
update/improve suddenly faster. Someone that pushes the community
other ways may do this also.
