Hi Graham

We have already started plans to centralize open source parts of the
community at www.maemocommunity.org.  Repos are first priority, then wiki,
the forum is tricky.  Input on value of community OBS for
harmattan/fremantle/diablo would be appreciated at this point.  Open for
discussion and volunteers are definitely wanted.  I would also check first
to make sure that someone hasn't already mirrored the repos as discussed
previously on the forum (sorry, don't have a link at the moment) as a
safeguard against them.

My opinion is that this does not moot maemo.org council quite yet.  It is
possible we will have a Nokia official website at maemo.org and start an
unofficial community website at maemocommunity.org.  Perhaps some resource
sharing is possible.  It would be best to still have a council still tasked
with communicating with Nokia since there is stuff left to sort out with

So I will extend the time period to make and accept council nominations to
the ML.  Please feel free to discuss these other things on a different
