No disrespect but I'm well aware of the Maemo brand page on the wiki. I was
just giving my impression of what the "community" might encompass. You are
correct in saying that not everyone who owns a tablet contributes to the
community, but as someone who works for a large corporation, I can tell you
that _my_ company regards all users of our products & services as the
community, not just those who "contribute." So, there is some disparity
between what Nokia Maemo might view as the community and what you (and
other) who are part of the community (or subset of the community) are

Again, my last description was just an illustration -- one that I purposely
left nokia.com out of in order to simplify the example.

As someone who contributes at all levels of the Maemo Community, I'd hate to
see one area discounted in its relationship to the others because it doesn't
contain maemo.org in the domain name. There are just too many
valuable/helpful/knowledgable people who might be technical enough to
participate in a discussion forum (e.g., itT), but not on a mailman mailing
list. Likewise, I know a lot of people who try to keep their online
memberships to a minimum (I'm not one of them). So, if you were a first-time
tablet user, what would you join first? itT? Or, maemo.org?
