[maemo-community] Deprecate the maemo-community list?

In much the same manner, stating that "one shall never change his
ways" is not any better than "one who demands for the mailing list to
be closed". Neither positions are listening to the other members'

I would also like to point out that even though I tried to offer one
of the very few alternative options that have been raised during the
beginning of this thread (Jaffa's Maemo Weekly Summary of what
happened across the whole of the community, all media alike), no-one
responded to it (and if you did, my apologies for not noticing).

Maybe Randall was right with what he stated on tmo: Have we come to a
point where we are looking for reasons to argue rather than looking
for solutions?

(Btw, jet-lag from eu to oz is seriously bad).
