Cool, congratulations for everyone that made this happen.

This is a huge and interesting milestone, as it was always very hard
to change the core components of the main OS, so we all had to go into
different solutions and distros.

We started Mamona and played so much with OE basically because it was
almost impossible to do this kind of changes into Maemo itself. Great
to see that Mer actually got more space and Nokia finally saw the
requests from the community.

I'm looking forward to see improvements on this area, and I'd love to help.
