There's Nokians participating in this team and they can provide these things through a repository. Keep in mind that Nokia didn't say 'we aren't putting resources towards the MeeGo on N900 hardware adaptation team'. It isn't just community, it's MeeGo project doing this. Which, as you can remember, has Intel and Nokia as backers.

They said 'no commercial support', which is meant as no, you can't call Nokia Care about your problems with it and it isn't a Nokia product. That the adaptation will technically work quite well, is another thing..
As you go on to other communities, remember to build them around politeness, respect, trust and humility. Be wary of poisonous people and deal with them before they end up killing your community.. Seen it happen to too many IRC channels, forums, open source projects.
