I think this is an issue which would be solved by Jaffa's idea to have
a Maemo Weekly Digest (or whatever the name is) that would contain
snaps and bits from all media alike.

Some people don't like http forums, some people don't like using mail,
some people don't give a rat's ass and some people just don't have the

I'm afraid we'd lose more than we'd gain by shutting any, and having
proxies relaying the info is going to create a lot more noise than
necessary, not to mention the extra work involved.

If people are motivated to find a solution, look into Jaffa's
proposal, and offer help. Everyone is a bit submerged at the moment,
so progress is very slow. Any help would definitely be appreciated.
