.. Continuing from the last part. Some interaction problems with my
computer :)  

Yes and no. We had a long internal talk of should internettablet talk be
part of nokia asset (as talk.maemo.nokia.com) or part of maemo.org. We
opted for the latter since we believe that the discussion should not
modified by Nokia in any way to keep it true to the community spirit.
Anyhow, I still see that the design of the site could be a mixture of
elements from maemo.nokia.com and from maemo.org. Feel free to say if
you think this is a bad idea :) At least, the maemo.nokia.com should be
a bit effectivily put out compared to current maemo.org design. 

I think the worry is that we'll be duplicating

This is a really good point. Comments and ratings are still under
discussion as well, I'll get back on this as we know more.
