No, because "maemo" is the application development platform. So the  
"users" of maemo are developers (think iphonesdk-users). maemo- 
developers is for people working on developing the development  
platform, maemo-users is for developers using that platform. It's only  
confusing because the community started using "maemo" to also apply to  
"Internet Tablet OS".

A mailing list for end users would be something along the lines of  
internet-tablet-os-users, itos-users, or similar.
