I think the big event in an annual Maemo calendar should be the
summit: I think it was an enormous success and re-invigorated so much
of the community.

There were comments from USians about the location - but as a European
(who'd never been to Berlin before), I thought it was perfect[1].

I'd resist the urge to have two "summits" - one in America, one in
Europe - but such an act may be necessary? The continent could
alternate, with a smaller spin-off get-together (possibly attached to
an existing event) on the other continent?

Organising something like the summit for a similar time (or maybe a
month or so before), presumably conflicts with the ramping up Maemo
Marketing will be doing for fremantle, and any notional device running
it ;-).

However, from a community point of view, getting together to celebrate
the fremantle release and showing off all the work done during the
alpha/beta stages on actual hardware could be very compelling.



[1] OK, it could be more perfect if it was somewhere like Coventry or
    Birmingham - although I'd be less boozy going home everyday ;-)
