Copied from tmo:

Maemo CommunityThere has been a lot of talk lately about what the Maemo Community Council is and how we should operate. This is a good thing -- something that the first Council asked for at Maemo Summit 2008.

A lot has happened since the inaugural Council was elected. I won't mention it all here, as it has been discussed ad nauseum in a few other places. What I will say is that we have been busy. Some of our work has been public and some has not. Some has made people happy and some has not. But, what has become clear is that there are definitely things that could be done better... One of them is communication with the Maemo Community.

Because of this, we have decided to hold a Public Maemo Community Council Meeting, this Monday, 8 June 2009, at 13:30 UTC.

Anyone can participate at
