As long as the Maemo infrastructure is still heavily depending on
Nokia's support I think we still need the council to give the community
a voice within Nokia?
Once Nokia completely pulls out of Maemo the council probably can be
dissolved but not earlier - maybe I miss the purpose of the council but
my impression was that its main function is to represent the community
towards Nokia? So as long as there is still the linkage between Maemo
and Nokia the council should stay in effect.
If there is shortage on council members I might even volunteer to
prevent its collapse ;)
