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

To be clear: I was in the process of resigning when this issue came up. I was on IRC daily, and in regular contact with you, the Board, and the rest of tech staff. Your interpretation of the events...

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

Not quite true. If there were an overwhelming desire for HiFo to remain, there is a way to make that happen. It would be very inefficient, and eat about half the funding we have, and would require...

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

One quick note: There's a reason that most of these questions have not been answered. In particular, as has been eluded to several times, it's often a fact that negotiations with a company must not...

But you can't. Because as much as...

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

Those were the official election results. Over 5,000 ballots went out (it was 5,600-ish the last one I pulled the trigger on). There were no site outages during the election. There was a banner up...

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

The answer is what it is. I did not trust those acting on behalf of HiFo (mainly YOU, as Tech Staff). As a result, I foresaw there could be legal repercussions, which I would wind up being the...

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

As noted by Wikiwide: Actions that may seem legal, or may even be legal in and of themselves, can still land those in charge in a pot of mess.

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

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

Sigh... This is nothing to do with MidGard being FOSS! It really doesn't. MidGard is, in fact, a sell-able product via LGPL. Bergie specifically put MidGard under LGPL so he could SELL CM sites to...

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

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".

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.

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.
