Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

I saved most of my replies to Joerg into one post. Not to say it's not relevant the conversation, it is. But it's more rehashed correction than it is "new material".



Quite the ego you have...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

The above is correct.



My understanding is that citizenship is needed only to be President, or Vice-Chair. GA members can be non-EU citizens, can they not? I honestly don't know... I'm...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

I noted that Nokia claimed we were doing such, and was confused on how that could happen, as I knew we did not have domain control for maemo.org at that point, yet alone nokia.com.

For the...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

Understand, in most countries "real non-profits" are in fact corporations. This is the case in most of the English speaking world.

HiFo is, by law, a non-profit corporation. A corporation is...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

A fine question, which sadly goes unanswered. I see no reason to limit the power of the GA.



Again, I think there is a misconception here.

When HiFo was put into place, there was a desire...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

That's not true. There is a clause that allowed the Foundation Council to call for a re-election of the Board. That was the "fail safe" put in, and the only power Council had over HiFo. That was...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

The issue is not about "MidGard ownership". It never was. That's something Joerg made up. The issue is someone claiming that the servers, and the software running on them, are not legally held and...

What other responsibilities did Council hold? The only thing that comes to mind was the distribution of "gifts" from Nokia, often in a way that promoted their products. (Eg: Coding competitions,...

Re: Open letter: Community, Council, Board and the MC eV

There is one simple problem with this approach: Those involved in the e.V. (like those in HiFo) take on legal liability. Where do you propose to find people willing to take on legal liability, while...

The problem then though is we need to have a solidly trusted and technical person review it to make sure it's clean of such items. Frankly, I'm not sure that can be 100% done while retaining the...

My bet: about 90. And a few only came back because they got an e-mail.
