[maemo-developers] Speaking in the name of Nokia (was Re: 3.2007.10-7 - Detailed change log?)

Just to clarify some roles here:

- Some people like Daniel are developing specific stuff for maemo. You
can ask, suggest, criticize and they will probably answer to the best of
their knowledge and time about the areas they work in. They might
eventually scale up and discuss some maemo or Nokia wide topics, and
even join uncomfortable discussions that are not directly under their
responsibility - just because they love you (aka have much respect for
your time, brain and energies invested in this project).

- Some people like me (and my direct managers that probably won't come
to maemo-developers to discuss) are quite useless alone when it comes to
give help or discuss technicalities about package X. In exchange we can
offer a general vision about maemo and Nokia, try to clarify things,
take note of general improvements, better strategic approaches and so

Take the best from each of us, that's my advice. We are just as good
people and as well intentioned as you. And we work at Nokia, yes.
