TMO <http://talk.maemo.org> forum started being part of maemo.org more than
3 years ago with funding from Nokia. Previously it was part of the web
site Internet
Tablet Talk <http://www.internettablettalk.com/>, privately founded by
Reggie Suplido and dedicated to the initial Nokia Maemo devices.

The Internet Tablet Talk <http://www.internettablettalk.com/> first
and TMO<http://talk.maemo.org/>
 later, have been the glue for this amazing community that we have,
providing an efficient way of communication between developers and end
users, not just a place for discussion and comments.

Reggie has been the administrator and owner of forums since the very
beginning, and thanks to him a lot has been accomplished. However, now that
Nokia is stopping activities around Maemo and Meego, continuation of forums
was at risk.

The cost of maintenance for current
solution was
too expensive ($468/month) to be funded by the Hildon
Continuing in the same way was clearly difficult so migration to a cheaper
solution was somehow mandatory.

Finally, Reggie has decided to donate the forum to the Hildon Foundation:

*"I will be stepping down as the TMO administrator effective January 1, **2013.
I have decided that I will be donating the database to the foundation."*

*"I saw my name mentioned in one of the board meetings about the possibility
of becoming the admin of maemo.org. I appreciate the offer
but I have to decline as of this time."*
