System operator for Maemo infrastructure needed
Editor: Ryan Abel
The migration of maemo.org from Nokia's stewardship to a community run and financed infrastructure is still underway. The new servers are up and running and most of the services are nearly ready in their new home. Short-term, one of the last major short-term blockers left is in the handover of DNS control from Nokia to the Hildon Foundation (on which there has been no visible movement unfortunately). Long-term, however, maemo.org is in need of a capable volunteer sysadmin for maemo.org: maemo.org is slowly but steadily coming into our hands. While this is very good news, it also puts a heavy workload on us, in various ways. One of these areas where we need help is systems administration. Unfortunately none of us in the Community Council and Board of Directors have either the time or (most importantly) the knowledge to supervise the systems operation of maemo.org.
Systems administration is frustrating, involved work that requires a wide range of detailed technical skills and rarely follows a predictable schedule. Any competent individual who steps up to this task will be owed a great deal by this community.
