Dear community.

Firstly we would like to thank all the people who voted in the recent elections. Your say matters and it's important that you "the community" have your say on who will represent us. As I am sure you know by now the objective of the recent Referendum was to
align HFC and MCC together, hence forming a Council with similar rules including a few tweaks to adjust to new practicalities; instead of being a Nokia conduit.
This will allow the two bodies to be aligned for the current and any future term. Hildon Foundation will therefore be left with one Council and a Board of Directors. In future this shall result in a single election performed for the unified council.


For the above to happen it is required that the elections for HFC and MCC members are to be the same.
This unfortunately did not happen and we are currently left with one different member in each body, out of the five.


The members of the Councils to be aligned are:

Maemo Community Council
 Rüdiger Schiller / chemist
 Joerg Reisenweber / joerg_rw
 Christian Ratzenhofer / merlin1991
 Michael Demetriou / qwazix
 Aakash Sadh  / thedead1440

Hildon Foundation Council
 Rüdiger Schiller / chemist
 Joerg Reisenweber / joerg_rw
 Christian Ratzenhofer / merlin1991
 Michael Demetriou / qwazix
 Paul Healy / sixwheeledbeast

We feel three bodies will cause great confusion to the community and will be counter-productive.

Therefore to solve matters, sixwheeledbeast and thedead1440 stepped down with immediate effect from HFC and MCC respectively. While they step down to allow the alignment of the two Councils into one singular body, the current Council
for its term must listen to the opinions the aforementioned two may have on any topics before council reaching a consensus.

Hence the aligned Hildon Foundation Council members now are:

Rüdiger Schiller / chemist
Joerg Reisenweber / joerg_rw
Christian Ratzenhofer / merlin1991
Michael Demetriou / qwazix

We believe the above is an important step for moving the Community forward with a unified Council in the post-Nokia era.

So:
MCC  hereby declares the bodies of HFC and MCC to be one single body in perpetuity.

Further,

MCC agrees to align all future changes to be in line with HFC's procedures of change so that the Bylaws are adhered to.
and:
HFC hereby declares the bodies of HFC and MCC to be one single body in perpetuity.  Further, HFC accepts as it's own all existing rules, electorate processes and generals of MCC, including future changes, as it's own.

Regards
Maemo Community Council & Hildon Foundation Council coalition.
