I think You're missing the point about "qt style agreement" here - We
*don't* talk about changing license of Maemo software (i.e. opening
closed bits, or whatever). Whole thing is about transferring
governance over project.

In the past, Nokia representatives made clear statement, that such
passing of maintainership is perfectly possible and appropriate for
Maemo. Unfortunately, during last Council's period, marias was stating
exactly opposite thing, and ignored multiple requests for
clarification - to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised, I he was just
not informed well enough - it seems like another example of situation,
where left hand doesn't know what right hands does. It may be
approriate in Bible, but doesn't work well for our project ;)

>From my side, I really hope, that there will be enough time to show
quotations of formed statements from Nokia side (to qgil), and as
about comment/clarification.

That was unclear in the original email.

I've never seen such a statement from Nokia -- can you point to it?
