[maemo-community] Maemo Community Award

I am requesting an N950, but I would not turn down an N9.

My tmo username is microe. My maemo.org username is microe.

I have owned an N800 and an N810, provided through the developer
discount program. I own an N900 that I currently use as my primary
mobile device.

Before becoming a part of the Maemo community I was very involved
in handhelds.org where I was the kernel maintainer for the h5400 port,
regular familiar developer and an Opie maintainer.

During the N8x0 period for Maemo I was a regular patch submitter
to Shopper, pwsafe, numpty physics and a few other pieces of software.
I had some level of activity on the mailing lists.

Once I received an N900, I immediately took to packaging
keychain for maemo. That package has sat in extras-testing
since 2010 b/c I have been too busy to change the bug label
on the package (my bad). I have managed to submit a few
patches and I have tried to be helpful on tmo.

Let me end by saying that there have been many submissions
for the community program that are far more impressive then
my own and if it came down to one of them getting a device
or me, they should definitely get it. Even so, if there are a
few left, I would gladly take my device and try to improve the
Harmattan environment w/ it.

Thanks again to Quim, all of the trolls at Nokia/Qt and
all of the people who have made the maemo community
