I agree the setting was not ideal but it was the best we could get in
order to deliver a HE in practical terms. The result of the exercise is
all in all acceptable, according to the feedback received.

My personal opinion (and I insist in the "personal" bit) is that a
requisite to continue any Hacker Edition model is to have the community
hackers not only involved but driving.

What does this mean in practice? We have discussed in several threads.
Time to agree on things and document in a more structured manner? May
sounds like a good month to draw the lines of a potential common plan.
Please drive. We at Nokia will help knowing more about the stones in the
way and the possibilities to remove them.

Nobody knows where the process will lead, but the process itself looks
already interesting enough.
