[maemo-community] Discussion about Maemo community management...

Why out-dated? Please explain.

I actually can't find any community manager in the communities / social
networks I'm part of. Yet many of them are quite vibrant, based on
common goals and using efficient tools.

Then again, Nokia has actually little to say on this if what you are
thinking about is a member of the maemo.org team. We agree on funding
the Maemo community with some budget to have "liberated" contributors
and then it's up to the community to decide what are the areas you want
to cover with the liberated people & time.
