Arg!  I missed that.  Okay, my condition just gets bumped up by one,

Maybe the next council needs to revisit that rule...

  Please note that, according to the rules, that it makes no difference
  if 4 or 5 people stand for election, only 3 will be chosen. There
  needs to be at least 6 candidates in order to have a full council of
  5 members elected.

  Please make your nomination non-conditional.

  (If you are short of time, you can always ignore that
  flash-in-the-pan faddish new distro, what's it called, Meebo?

    I have been pressed to run again for maemo.org council by some
    members but am concerned about my potential level of
    contribution.  Available time has been lean lately.

    However... IF only 4 members declare by the deadline, then
    consider this my announcement as fifth.  My preference though is
    that I be bumped by someone new.  ;)

    Qualifying statement:

    "Experienced product innovator and former Nokia quality engineer
    who was directly involved in the launch and support of
    Linux-powered mobile computers like the N800. 2011 Forum Nokia
    Champion, two-time maemo.org community council representative and
    current MeeGo community advocate, working on grassroots marketing
    process and the MeeGo community device program as well as other
    key community initiatives.  Founder of Maemo Greeters and MeeGo
    Greeters, successful community self-help programs.  Manages MeeGo
    Network DFW (http://www.meetup.com/MeeGo-Network-DFW/).

    "Writer for Tabula Crypticum (http://tabulacrypticum.wordpress.com)
    on "best practices, random analyses and sober speculation", and
    at Intel's AppUp developer site (http://appdeveloper.intel.com/en-us/blogs/randall-arnold).

    If I participate again, my focus will be on getting Maemo more
    (or even fully) under community control.  NOTE: council members
    typically lack the legal, financial and other wherewithall to do
    more than petition for Nokia's consideration.
