Nokia supporting Hildon Foundation in ecosystem infrastructure move
Editor: Ryan Abel
The Hildon Foundation Board made a surprising and welcome announcement last week, notifying the community that Nokia has offered to cover the costs of migration for maemo.org: In a conference held by Nokia, Nemein and the Hildon Foundation, Nokia has offered to help economically in the process of migration. The details for starting the migration are under discussion. Nokia is already working with the Hildon Foundation in a legal document to cover the transferring process ofmaemo.org assets. While this document is being reviewed and completed, the migration process of services should take place during the month of December.
Details are still being discussed, but so far Nokia will cover the costs of the migration and of new hardware for the site. Funding for hosting costs at Nemein will need to be covered by the foundation beginning in 2013.
