Q - Are the dates definite now?
A - Yes. We have changed them because we believe more people will join,
even if we are not close to OSiM World anymore. Also because it's a good
time to start talking about Harmattan.

Q - How has been the venue decided?
A - Kees (council member based in Amsterdam) coordinated a first round
of possible venues. Kees, Niels (maemo.org webmaster, also Dutch) and
Quim (Nokia contact) visited 3 finalists. It was decided with the
Council that this one offered the best combination of price, flexibility

Q - How can I help?
A - Book your travel and/or go to
http://wiki.maemo.org/Maemo_Summit_2009 to see what to do. In case of
doubt just ask.

Q - Can you sponsor my travel/accommodation?
A - No idea since we don't know you (or do we? :) ) and we have to
organize first the budget. In the meantime help yourself: be a core
community member and/or a genius independent developer.
