I would like to second Andrea's nomination. He has been a tireless
supporter of Maemo and has gone out of his way to volunteer for
special projects and issues. He is passionate, eager to help, and
usually always available -- he's a good guy too.

Tim (two-time Maemo Community Council Representative)
