Drama is a big gender itself, no need to overdo it.  ;)

The discussion about the maemo platform is getting increasingly
interesting but we all need to assimilate a wider context in order to
push it to higher levels. As an example, here is some context:


You see some familiar logos there. In fact what matters are not the
logos in this web page, but what is behind thi space for collaboration.
GNOME is just an example, there are other. Never underestimate the
importance of this. Source code is important, but no more than the
people creating it. If you evaluate the maemo project only looking at
the source code you will miss part of the picture.

Someone wrote few days ago about "the somewhat closed community in which
we're operating". Now this is perhaps too dramatic. I hope you agree
that we are doing not-bad in terms of participation and collaboration in
the upstream context, at several levels. Perhaps we just need more
catchy t-shirts so you notice better. ;)


PS: btw, hi from Santa Clara CA, where something is going on:
