[Referendum] [Council] Council Rules Referendum (fwd)

Since a few days ago we have been on our own and having a body that it's main 
function is to communicate with Nokia no longer serves a purpose. Another body 
with similar functionality is however provisioned by the ByLaws of the Hildon 
Foundation. We need to set up election rules for this new body (Hildon 
Foundation Council) and transform Maemo Community Council to Hildon Foundation 
Council.

The Maemo Community Council election rules ( 
http://wiki.maemo.org/Community_Council/Election_process ) are a good base to 
start with, but they have a drawback: While there is a provision to avoid 
unelected members for less than 5 members, this provision does not cover the 
actual number five resulting in all 5 candidates to be appointed councillors 
(what has currently happened). This should be corrected and the clause "If 
fewer than 5 candidates stand for election, the 3 with the most votes are 
elected to the council. " must be changed to "...fewer than or equal to 
five...". For the same reason, the clause "If there are fewer than 3 
candidates when the nominations close, the election cannot be held. " must be 
changed to "...fewer than or equal to three...".

Thus, a referendum is called with the following question:

In order to repair special cases in MCC rules, and bring them into alignment 
with HFC rules, the following: (MCC Rule List*) Shall become (HFC Rule List*), 
and the Maemo Community Council will from now on be transformed into Hildon 
Foundation Council. Yes or No?

*For the full list of changes between MCC Rule List and HFC Rule List see: 
http://wiki.maemo.org/Community_Council/council_rules_referendum

(Since this referendum should be resolved before the upcoming Council

Maintenance break: updating auto-builder to resolve dependency issues

Hi all,

The fremantle autobuilder will be switched to use the debian-squeeze

maemo.org mailing moved to new servers

Hi,

After a bit of unexpected struggle Niels and myself got the mail
services moved to the new servers. Thanks Niels for the help!

Some emails you sent during the last one hour or so might have got
"lost". They are somewhere on a relay server (not in our hands) and may
never end up on the lists server. If this is the case then I would
kindly ask you to re-post those mails and I also apologize for the
inconvenience.

Otherwise hope the new servers will serve the mail traffic just fine.

Maemo Community Council: election announcement

As current chair of the Maemo Community Council[1], I'm announcing
that the third council election will conclude at:

    Sunday, 27th September 2009 23:59 UTC[2]

This will give the incoming council about two weeks to nominate a
chair; prepare for the first sprint meeting of the new term (Tuesday,
6th October) and get ready for the kick-off of the community days at
the Maemo Summit 2009[3].

WHAT IS THE COUNCIL?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The council is an elected body of 5 members of the Maemo community who
represent the community to Nokia and facilitate cross-community
discussions and organisation. For example, activities the council have
been involved in include:

  * The Maemo Summit 2009 location, date, schedule and accomodation
  * Promotion and support of Mer[4], as the future of Maemo for
    current devices.
  * Chairing the monthly maemo.org sprint meetings and setting
    priorities for the paid members of staff.
  * Triaging bugs.
  * Communicating with people outside the community on behalf of
    the community.
  * Helping define the Extras QA process.
  * The interviewing and choice of the maemo.org docmaster.

You don't have to be a council member to work on these tasks, but the
council can help avoid duplication of work; and raise awareness of the

Canola is free!

[This text has been posted to
http://etrunko.blogspot.com/2009/03/canola-is-free.html]

I'm pleased to announce that I've just closed bug #3881, which means
that from now on Canola and all its components are licensed under the
GNU General Public License version 3.

The source code of the former closed-source packages, Atabake,
Download Manager, Terra and Canola, has been uploaded to our gitorious
server a few hours ago.

The canola-devel mailing list for developers is already set up and
working on garage. Everyone is very welcome to join us in the
development of the project. For documentation, such as installation
instructions, build dependency, and so on, I'm setting up a wiki that
should go online by the end of this week under the openbossa.org
domain.

With all this, Canola officially leaves the beta status. The packages
of for the final 2.0.0 version will be uploaded soon, together with
brand new Maemo-EFL.

Last, I'd like to thank everyone for supporting the project even
before the very first release and especially for providing feedback on
the various releases we had since December 2007. If today we were able
to release Canola as Free Software, consider yourself responsible for
it as well.

Best Regards, Etrunko.
