Dear friends and Maemoans, it has been a busy six months, and again it is time to elect a new Community Council for us.

The last election finished on Saturday 14th of December 2013 so the new election should be done by Saturday 14th of June 2014.

The schedule of the voting is as follows:

  • Nomination period starts now on the 5th of May 2014 and continues until 31st of May 2014.
  • Contemplation period starts on Sunday 1st of June 2014 and continues until Saturday 7th of June 2014.
  • Election period starts on Sunday 8th of June 2014 and continues until 14th of June 2014.

To get our community to continue strong, we need fresh people with fresh viewpoints to carry on the torch, so please think about volunteering for Maemo Council.

Currently there is lots of things going on, as the Maemo council is now the one unified Council, acting on behalf of the whole Maemo Community and its legal representation bodies, the Maemo e.V. (registered association, successor to HiFo) and the Hildon Foundation.

On behalf of the outgoing community council,

Jussi Ohenoja

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):
- Discussion on moving Hildon Foundation to a german e.V.

Topic (Discussion on moving Hildon Foundation to a german e.V.):

  • DocScrutinizer announced that it is no longer possible to donate to Maemo through his PayPal account, so there needs to be found another way for people to support running the Memo infra.
  • juiceme was under the mistaken impression that this MC meeting would also serve as Maemo E.v. founding/kickoff meeting. However as there are not yet enough founders the kickoff meeting needs to be postponed.
  • There was a lot of general discussion on the form of the E.v., as it was questioned that the suggestion for the new council would be 5 people, and current Maemo Council stands a 3 people. It was noted that actually the numver 5 is not a strict requirement, and the E.v. rules could be modified so thet number of council would be 3 and the current council could become the new Maemo E.v. council, provided that current Maemo Council rules are exactly same as in the new council.

Absent:

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):
- Discussion on moving Hildon Foundation to a german e.V.

Topic (Discussion on moving Hildon Foundation to a german e.V.):

  • Win7Mac has consulted a lawyer on the responsibilities of directors of an E.v. and the extents of liability. It seems that directors are "only liable for damage by gross negligence and intent" so there propably is no need for an extra insurance for the directors. There was some general talk over liability, and juiceme asked if there is any possibility that in EU there could be similar threat of litigation that Woody was fearing could happen to HiFo in US. General consensus seems to be that it is not likely.
  • chem|st asked if Win7Mac will take care of the "Nokia" statements all over the website, and check that there are no unappropriate binaries in repositories.
  • Win7Mac presented the work-on-progress for the changing of names/terms in the legal documentation on the website:
Win7Mac told that when the documenation has been finished it will be reviewed again by a lawyer, and should be finalized by friday this week.
