Hi and thanks(?) for the nomination,

since I'm short of time right now (alas this won't change for whole term, I 
promise), I just like to post a "I accept" here, since ivgalvez pushed me by 
mentioning there's only 5h left to do so. Plus I add a self-nomination for 
board, since I think there's much of synergy to be exploited and board is the 
more enjoyable position in my book anyway.

I'm not promising I'll invest more of my time than available (which is pretty 
little, maybe even as small as 2h/week) into either of both, and I'm accepting 
just to not let maemo down. No self-advertisements here right now, those who 
know me will also know whether to vote for me or not. 
Just one statement: In my book both council and board are *services* brought 
to community since community needs them. I'm not interested in any "internal" 
power (definitely falsely) attributed by some to either of those positions, I 
will exploit all the power/opportunities that such a position might give, to 
bring maemo ahead or at least keep it alive. But I'm neither maemo's master 
nor your referee, and I hope you'll call me out on that if ever my notion 
regarding that seems to have changed. 
I'm ready to help as much as my spare time and knowledge allows, and that's 
it. I'm not promising to become a better diplomat, I know my soft skills are 
poor regarding that, please excuse me already. Nor will I hold back with my 
notions regarding particular details of development or maintenance. I think 
and hope I could still act as a normal community member regarding that, and I 
hope you won't read every of my comments like I had a council hat on, it 
doesn't fit my head ;-). Now it's up to you.
