Showing a map of Maemo people on maemo.org would be extremely simple:

* Add a "location" field to the account editing schema, this will provide
  an editing widget like:

* Add a new view displaying users on a map (preferably filterable by projects,
  karma, "near me" etc). We have Mapstraction integration so this can be
  for example Google Maps or OpenStreetMap (I'd prefer the latter)

Pretty trivial thing, and benefiting from the fact that we already
have comprehensive profiles of people on maemo.org so they don't need
to register to yet another service.

We intended to do this already two years ago, but back then it wasn't
wanted. I'm assuming now people would like to have it :-)

Bonus: we could make it update via the "share location to contacts"
feature of Maemo 5 / N900.
