As difficult as it is to get Nokia to act as a coherent mind, it will be
more than twice as difficult with Nokia + Intel. I would not expect
there to be an easy way to have the same efficiency we have now with
MeeGo - to my mind, the technical steering committee will probably have
a related community steering committee & (if we can avoid excessive
bureaucracy all round) that would be the logical landing spot for
Council queries & interactions.

The community steering committee would consist of the MeeGo council +
Dawn & Quim, and perhaps us staff, and would meet regularly among
themselves, and also with the technical steering committee.

I don't think it makes sense to put "Maemo" or "moblin" stickers on
seats in the MeeGo council - much better to work ASAP on building a
MeeGo identity, and getting to know the most active people on both sides.

Of course, for the moment this is all hypothetical seed-planting.
