[maemo-community] A rant on 25th-hour hysterics...

Despite owning a 770 and being involved in IRC and iTT I didn't setup
a garage account until I needed to do some collaboration on the
grandcentral dialer ( just released into extras today as dialcentral
).  I didn't setup a maemo.org account until the Summit came around.
It turns out that was after the 3 month cutoff.  I was unable to run
for office because I had no idea how "karma" worked and most of my
participation had been on iTT and IRC, areas that karma still doesn't

Maybe I would have been more active in maemo.org or karma had I been
on this list, but as I believe I have stated in the past... I hate
email lists.  I don't have another 4 hours a week to dedicate to
reading and responding to another listserv.

As others have pointed out it's very hard to quantify a "participating
community member" and even harder to setup an artificial rating system
to make such determinations.
