[maemo-community] Sprint meeting this month - and beyond?

Hi all,

No sprint meeting's been announced this month, but since we didn't have
one last month, I think one is necessary.

I propose that we have a meeting which is a little less formatted than
usual - with an agenda, and with discussion among maemo.org staff, the
council, prominent Nokia people and interested community members, to do
something like renew a 100 days sprint.

An off-the-top-of-my-head agenda for the meeting should look like this:

1. Review of progress over the past year of maemo.org team (open discussion)
2. Setting priorities for next 3 months for the community - not
micro-tasks, but larger goals
3. Allocation of ownership & co-ordination responsibilities within these
tasks to members of the maemo.org team
4. A full & frank discussion of the impact of the MeeGo project on the
short-term goals of Maemo

The monthly check-list meetings have not been satisfying for me. Nor has
not having a meeting at all. Over the past 3 months, it's felt like
large sections of the Maemo community have moved into wait-and-see mode
with MeeGo, and no-one wants to be working on things now which end up
being obsoleted by MeeGo/Harmattan work in a few months.

It feels like we need to mobilise the community around a couple of
shorter-term goals where we have people actively working together and

Council members, how does this sound to you? It (obviously) doesn't make
sense to organise this for today, but perhaps later this week? Perhaps
we could start by opening some discussion based on the agenda I've
proposed (or one that you'd like to propose to replace it) on Talk and here?
