Basically agreed.  I'd like to see future plans given minimal weight - it's
hard to gauge promises, etc, and IMO these should be viewed as unexpected
rewards/thank yous for those who have served the community.  I think the
time period should be the last year or two so someone who left the
community can't claim a device based on service they did three years ago.
If we could do it (and I know it's not feasible), I'd use karma over the
last 1-2 years as a rough starting point (maybe drop tmo posts, but not tmo
thanks)  And by community contributions, we should clarify we mean the
maemo.org community (no disrespect to Mer/nemo/qt/meego/etc).  And I think
we should allow nomination of others instead of just self-nominations, and
community members to give +1s to the nominations of others on the wiki
page. (mindful to determine that people can't receive a second device if
they already have one)

I agree we should let new council (or a committee they select) decide who
gets a device, but not wait on determining the criteria to be applied so we
can meet the deadline qgil has requested.
