are not part of any "community".

I too am having a hard time understanding this. I regard all users and
former users of NITs as part of the Internet Tablet community but not
everyone I guess is part of the Maemo community (by
I myself am wondering why should there be a line between the two.

If we build a Maemo community that encourages feedback, does it mean that a
person, giving feedback that helps improve an app becomes automatically part
of the community? or is there some amount of level or contribution to become
a fully fledged member of the community? -- it's becoming messy.
