I can't make it to the meeting but my tasks reported are up to date. For
the next Sprint I propose to commit to these tasks:

MUST: http://maemo.org/intro refresh

SHOULD: Distribute Fixed In Fremantle shirts to contributors that didn't
make it to the Summit

COULD: Update http://wiki.maemo.org/Open_development/Maemo_roadmap/Fremantle

Please use http://wiki.maemo.org/Maemo.org_proposals and
http://wiki.maemo.org/Maemo.org_backlog as intended to plan the next sprint.

In my opinion two areas that require the attention in this sprint are
Brainstorm and Packages.

Brainstorm hasn't seen any real movement this month, even if the plan is
more or less clear with Henri/bergie and Oskari/netblade. The new
proposals are piling up in Sandbox, the interface is suboptimal both for
newcomers and regular users and there are plenty of proposals to improve
the Brainstorm stuck in the Brainstorm itself:

Packages, we need to convert the feedback after the Marathon into a plan
that Niels can drive to implementation when he is back from holidays. We
can expect real N900 users this month, and the success of this task has
a direct impact on them (plenty of good quality software in Extras or not).

Also, I think it would be a good practice to take always for the next
sprint the most popular proposals at
http://maemo.org/community/brainstorm/category/maemo.org/ideas Today
this would mean to make a decision about

Developers should get karma based on the relevance of their software
