Hi Rob,

I have never left! Have to say that for personal reasons haven't been as
involved as before but I am still here!

Maemo.org is a very special place for me!

BTW, I understand your frustration of depending on "someone else" for
everything and anything!

I know that Quim have A LOT MORE on his plate but have to say that having
him back as Nokia's point of contact immediately gave me hope!

Not sure if it makes any sense to try this now or if it is better to wait
after the election but hopefully we can start to gather all "the community
issues/desires/hopes and dreams" into a document so we can discuss have a
public discussion with Quim and hopefully decide on some action items. I
believe we need a community proposal. I also believe we MUST have an
election this time and would love to see more candidates so we can have one
and still abide to the rules.

Having people disagree is great - it shows we care! Maybe we can build up
on this!
