	This sounds good... And, was something I was a little confised about
prior to your email -- so thanks. 

	So, maybe maemo.org should veer slightly towards the "dev" side
(without becoming too bogged down in dev-oriented issues right off the
bat). I think that a good "standardized" type of recipricol linking
system needs to be devised for both maemo.org and maemo.nokia.com that
posints vistors towards the "conjoined" sites (maybe the same type of
"button," but different colors?). Anyway, users of maemo.org need to
be made aware of maemo.nokia.com and vice versa.

 As the guy responsible of giving life to maemo.nokia.com (and other
 consumer marketing as well..) there's couple of things I'd like to
 out about the maemo.org redesign. It's important that the both sites
 have their own mission and now is the good time to plan out how they
 help out eachother in this.   
 The way I see it that maemo.nokia.com represents the Experience
 maemo.org the Intelligence of Maemo Software. By experience I mean
 what end-users can do with a device running Maemo software and
 applications, creating a good pull-in effect to boost the sales of
 devices running Maemo. This also includes high-lighting the best
 community applications from the maemo.org. New users should always
 and land first to maemo.nokia.com to learn about Maemo and from
 continue to maemo.org to get involved. Therefore maemo.nokia.com
 etc. needs to be strongly present in the Maemo.org frontpage.    
 I'd also like to encourage new & potential users coming to
 maemo.nokia.com to join the maemo.org community. In order to        

 maemo.org to expand as community beyond developers, it needs to
 lower the barrier to get people involved. There needs to be guidance
 improvements for users to "file bugs" for instance. It maybe should
 called something entirely different because users might find it a
 uninviting to "file a bug" while for developers this is basic stuff.
 would be really good if there would be kind of "introduction" page
 Maemo.org where there would be easy to follow, step-by-step
 on how they can start contributing to the community.
 What do you think? If you have any ideas or thoughts about the
 relationship between maemo.org and maemo.nokia.com, just let me
