+1.... It is a little naive of me but as long as we have lots of users with
interest on the maemo.org, Nikia will also.

Just the fact that so many new harmattan users found maemo to be their home
tells about how good this community is.
I am actually more concerned with the future of meego.com than maemo.org

The one part of maemo.org that (especially as a developer) frustrates me is
the extras "promotion" -  I don't think giving super power to a couple
users is the answer (it may be a band-aid for now). It is a larger problem
and has been for a quite a while. I think the decision of installing
something that is "devel" quality, "testing" quality or "extras" quality
should be left to the user on an application basis (maybe something like a
"stability indicator" next to the "user rating" is all that is needed. We
should try again to work with whatever is left of meego (appsformeego, obs,

I don't think we need garage either (there are so many other places that
can be used, like the projects @ nokia.com).

Ultimately, I think the goal should to aggregate and not disperse.

Just wanted to add my 2ct - I don't think maemo.org is dead!
