New Maemo Community Council makes themselves (slightly) public
As we've previously covered, there were only three candidates for the Maemo Community Council. This meant that no election was necessary. In a post on TMO, RM Bauer introduces the three new members:
Thanks to all of those who participated in the discussion surrounding the future of maemo.org prior to the election. Ultimately, none of the persons who advocated shutting down maemo or transitioning it to meego ran for council. I think it was good that the discussion, although heated at times, did not continue on as part of a divisive, partisan election. Hopefully, we can all now move forward together as an independent self-governing community intent on promoting the use of maemo software on pocketable devices.
The above quote is a little disingenous as no-one was arguing for an immediate shutdown of maemo.org. Rob then went on to explain two proposals that they'd like to see the community comment on: pushing one or two big projects and "stepping back" from technical issues.
