Corporate affiliation: none relevant to Maemo

I had a lot of fun serving on the Council the first time around and I  
really feel the inaugural Council accomplished a lot in its 6-month  
term (see Andrew's email for a list ;)), as such, I'd like to serve a  
second term and continue working for the Maemo Community. There is  
still a lot of work to be done to see the accomplishment of major  
goals like improving Nokia's understanding of open source and  
encouraging greater collaboration between Nokia and the community.  
There are also a lot of smaller-scale project like integrating the  
Application Manager with Downloads, implementing a strong QA process  
for Extras, and improving the state of Maemo documentation (to name a  
few of my pet projects).

This is a pivotal time for Maemo, with Fremantle and the next tablet  
looming on the horizon and likely a major marketing shift for the  
platform within the next year or two the platform will be undergoing  
many major changes and quite a bit of activity, I'd like to be here to  
encourage things in the right direction.

Ryan Abel
Maemo Community Council chair
