turned over to the community

September 17, 2010

In a bit of very good news, Nokia has released governance over to the Maemo community. There already is a maemo community council so they will be the governance body (vote ongoing now).

While Maemo is sadly an officially “dead” OS, it may be given new life if the community can take over and run it. There are still lots of excellent and quite dedicated hackers and members in the community so I see no reason why this shouldn’t be a vibrant project. It can also share source code with other projects like MeeGo and Linaro and can potentially help Maemo keep pace with MeeGo. I do have some concerns with the OBS but there are other ways to build packages.

This is good news and I look forward to being more active again in a more open community.
