I saw zehjotkah's tweet; it does seem like a crazy number of emails.
Is it being proposed - by the Coding Competition - that *anyone* with
a maemo.org account will be invited to vote?

Lots of people have created them, but aren't really part of the
"community". If those are the rules of the Coding Competition, I
suggest they are changed to limit the number of emails; or blogs/list
announcements/banners on maemo.org are used to inform people of it.

When I worked in corporate communications, everyone thought their
particular topic was the single most important thing... <clarkson>in
the world</clarkson> and wanted it emailed to everyone. This is not
one of those situations (and the situations in which all maemo.org
account holders would be emailed seem limited to things like security
issues with the accounts database, or the future of the site).

Hope that helps,
