Jolla, Part 2…

Dear Jolla,

Thank you for your response to our Open Letter. As you can see from the community conversation regarding your response — here, as well as various social media circles — most of our members want more. The Hildon Foundation appreciate the invitation to become “true pioneers,” but in all honesty, the Maemo community has been a true pioneer for many years now as a unique open source initiative combining developers and users with a community repository of applications and platform components.

This being said, we understand that Jolla is a future that we would like to help make successful if possible. Currently, neither Jolla nor any Jolla affiliates affiliates (Mer, Nemo, Sailfish OS, etc.) have any sort of “community,” user base, or public space for communication to speak of. These assets can be extended if, for example, you are interested in a community repository, cross-platform development, or helping developers migrate to Sailfish. We had already intended to provide a public space for Jolla/Nemo/Sailfish and will continue to do so regardless. Would Jolla like to help with any of these efforts that will benefit Jolla?

We thank you for indicating on our website that Jolla agrees to support a Sailfish on N900 project. Of course, our community contains the world’s most knowledgeable developers on the N900 device. We would promote and host the project in a variety of ways to leverage our existing expertise and bring in new participants.

What type of support and/or cooperation does Jolla envision providing?

Thank you,
The Hildon Foundation

Happy New Year Maemo Community!

As we move into the new year, we’re also faced with a very new phase of life — that is, complete control of the maemo.org infrastructure, meaning community governance of the Maemo Community and everything that it implies (community servers and software repositories, various maemo-related software and technology, the talk.maemo.org forum and wiki, etc.). It’s a lot to fathom, but we are certain that if any community can handle it, this one can.

New vBulletin license for TMO…

This is just a quick note of thanks (again) to the Maemo Community for stepping up and donating their hard-earned money in order to keep our community alive.

vBulletinBecause of your donations and the help of many community members — especially Reggie Suplido (rsuplido), long-time Maemo Community member and Super Admin of TMO (talk.maemo.org) and internettablettalk.com — we were able to purchase a license for vBulletin, the software that runs the TMO forums.

But, what does this mean for our community? It means that when we are set to migrate all of the maemo.org infrastructure to new servers at the end of this year, TMO will be coming with it. Hopefully, due to the migration and the vBulletin license, the community downtime will be negligible.

Again, thank you for supporting this community. And, if you haven’t donated any money yet, please consider doing so here:

Happy Holidays everyone!
