Introducing the fourth Maemo Community Council

The election is over, and the new Maemo Community Council has been announced: Ryan Abel, Randall Arnold, Javier S. Pedro, Attila Csipa and Andrew Flegg as chair.

We're your council, so please get in touch via email (; IRC; mailing lists or Talk. Please remember, though, that the council doesn't (and shouldn't!) do everything. If you want to step up to organise something and want our support, we'll be happy to give it!

MeeGo: "Day One"

MeeGo has reached "day one": the source code has been released, the bug tracker open and the first of many weekly snapshots released.
Today is the culmination of a huge effort by the worldwide Nokia and Intel teams to share the MeeGo operating system code with the open source community. This is the latest step in the full merger of Maemo and Moblin, and we are happy to open the repositories and move the ongoing development work into the open - as we set out to do from the beginning.
Also released are complete OS images for Atom-based netbooks and the N900, allowing your device to boot into an xterm and explore the lowest levels of the OS.

Thanks, Jaffa, for carrying (nearly?) the whole weight of this issue. Got distracted by Easter Sunday stuff and it completely slipped my mind.

I owe you an issue, then!
