Maemo, MeeGo, Mer, Tizen: Short statūs

While the official Maemo platform (led by Nokia) is not actively developed anymore, some 3rd party Extras and the Maemo Community Updates project (which welcomes helping hands) are quite alive.
MeeGo never managed to fulfil its own expectations with regard to openness and transparency and is also more or less dead.
Tizen (MeeGo’s successor) is still vaporware plus membership is mostly invite-only while I prefer transparency.

Mer LogoWhat is left and to recommend in this area is Mer, a community-driven project based on MeeGo with real open governance and trustworthy maintainers that know how to communicate.

Consequently I have removed my admin flag for MeeGo’s bugtracker (it feels unmaintained anyway) and unsubscribed from nearly all MeeGo and Tizen mailing lists.
I will continue to stick around in the Maemo and Mer communities (mailing lists, IRC, bugtrackers) as they currently feel like the places to be. Cheers!

I went to San Francisco (US&A) to play Ping-Pong with Chris (I also recommend him as a tour guide – he knows the city). At the same time a conference took place. At the weekend’s preconference I discussed MeeGo L10N with Margie. I cleaned up the wiki before, but still there is enough to still [...]

In case Miguel makes it popular to take the name of a previous company and change the order of the letters a bit to find a name for a new company, this is my proposal for Nokia (as I pass that shop quite often at night when going home and have to smile everytime):

My MeeGo bugtriaging experience so far

But it happened that it was early October and that I felt like diving into MeeGo bugtriaging. After some public whining, Carsten (who’s always a huge help) and Dawn were kind enough to point out the existence of the meego-qa mailing list. I subscribed. At that time there also was a wikipage with a list [...]

bugs.maemo.org updated to 3.4

As some might have noticed, bugs.maemo.org was upgraded from ancient version 2.22 to 3.4 last week. This means we now have a version running that is maintained upstream, a design that fits to the rest of maemo.org, less noisy comments, a frontpage that now states “This is a community issue tracker, sponsored by Nokia, not [...]

MeeGo Conference 2010

The enthusiasm at this conference was pretty impressive. It was probably the right boost for the MeeGo project at the right time as engineers of involved companies could get to know each other and hopefully now also understand a bit better the needs and expectations of the community with regard to openness. At least some [...]

Three interesting Maemo5 bits

End of Life for Maemo5 hildon-desktop & friends. Being honest and communicating that something is dead: New, and good. On the wishlist for next time: Announce it on the developer mailing list (though that implies interaction with people outside of Nokia, scary!) in case somebody wants to pick up maintainership. Unlikely, but still. If you [...]

MyNokia in Maemo’s PR1.2 release

(I’m not the first person to cover this topic, anyway.) After upgrading my Nokia N900 to the latest software version (PR1.2) I got a “MyNokia” screen after rebooting. Nokia was kind enough to offer me both subscribing to their MyNokia service by sending Nokia an SMS message and to read the Terms and Conditions of [...]

maemo.org: SNAFU ;-)

The last two weeks were a bit… stressful. First of all some Nokia-internal changes with regard to Error Management, then maemo.org Bugzilla moving to a new server. Unexpected side effect was data loss. Spent part of last Monday restoring what I still had in my bugmail. Still it leads to confusion and mistrust (“Why was [...]
