Please excuse my butting in, however I would like to ask a serious 

Whom do you think might be more knowledgable and (imho) in a better 
position to vote on council members:
1) Someone reading the various maemo lists, including the discussions on 
this list.
2) Someone posting development related questions on the maemo-developers 
3) Someone rating downloadable software on maemo.org.

Options 2 and 3 provide karma, 1 does not, but it does provide a lot of 
background (what they deem important, how they interacts etc) on the 
people I expect to be candidates for the council.

(And while I would not turn Nokia down if they offered a device, I do 
think there are others in the community more deserving and karma might 
just be the correct way to measure that)
