I'm really file with both "Maemo Talk" and "talk.maemo.org" as the site
name & URL respectively.

In the main menu of maemo.org, though, I just wonder if "Talk" will mean
the same thing to visitors as it does to those of us in the know. I see
"Maemo Talk" as a brand, not a description of what it is. Will people
really know what "Talk" is? I'd have guessed something about feedback,
or maybe telephony? But definitely not "The Maemo users forum". And
since, in the top menu, we don't have the luxury of explaining what is
behind the links, we need the labels we use to be explicit about
function, no?

This is great! I hope we will also promote "Maemo Talk" heavily on
