[maemo-community] Maemo Community Council Q1 2011 nominations are now open...

We need a Council right now. I think it should be their job to figure
out what happens next. (The current Council shouldn't (imho), because
our term is up.)

I don't think an election is necessary (I, too, like all of the candidates).

Thanks, nominees!
