You may have seen me bugging Jeremiah about this, but I think the
maemo.orgstaff should all wade into the mire of
talk.maemo.org on a regular basis and try to participate there.

The mailing lists are much quieter than the forums, and the forums have a
much larger number of enthusiast end-users. The docmaster is even more
community oriented than the debmaster (who is more developer oriented), and
I believe the docmaster should be hip deep in the forums, seeing what
questions are getting asked and what things people are talking about and
struggling with on a daily basis.

The forum redesign has improved things a bit when it comes to looking at new
and active threads. There's a new box on the right side called "Active
Topics" that you can use as a launching point...

The entire month of May on the maemo-users mailing list looks like a week's
worth of posts on t.m.o., and there's very little overlap between talk and

enthusiast, n. "One whose mind is wholly possessed and heated by what
engages it; one who is influenced by a peculiar fervor of mind; an ardent
and imaginative person."
