Please take a look at this planned talk[0] by me and timeless. We are
thinking along these lines and I know I'm personally interested in
more feedback from the Maemo community than what I was able to extract
so far[1].  I think there's more place for discussion both online and

(3) is describing exactly my thoughts when I first submitted the
proposal. One of my intentions is to come up with a written manifesto,
if you will, and try and communicate it to my favorite handset
producer for sake of better satisfaction out of the end product, and
the process in between.

If you have any input that you'd like to share and that we could use
at the talk- that'd be great.

Was this a physical sprint that took place somewhere?

Agreed. This community is a great place to be, especially for starting
developers where people are less busy and can spend more time helping
someone to get his feet wet. I think we should both preserve or better
it and keep it relevant for MeeGo.
