WOMWorld-organised meetups in Toronto & Vancouver postponed (now in May)
The WOMWorld-organised Canadian meetup for Maemo enthusiasts in Toronto and Vancouver has been delayed due to the volcanic activity in Iceland. As you may be aware, there is a travel situation in Europe. Unfortunately, Samir Agarwal is currently stranded and will be unable to join us for the event. The event has been rescheduled for May 4th in Vancouver (7pm at Storyeum) and May 5th in Toronto (7pm at the Drake Hotel).
Meeting minutes for MeeGo TSG meeting, following up from Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit
The MeeGo Technical Steering Group meeting took place on Wednesday following the break last Wednesday for the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in San Francisco, where several heavy-hitters from the Maemo Community including: Quim Gil, Henri Bergius, Dave Neary, both myself (user:generalantilles_ and Randall Arnold from the council, as well as Imad Sousou from the MeeGo TSG, and Dawn Foster, Quim's Intel counterpart.
The meeting this week summarized some of the key points, and addressed a number of lingering questions, from the LF Summit, as well dealing with continued issues of transparency and openness in MeeGo (particularly in the area of architecture development and discussion).
MeeGo Bugzilla moving to bugs.meego.com
After an extended discussion, the MeeGo Bugzilla URL has been changed from bugzilla.meego.com (Moblin's format) to bugs.meego.com (Maemo's format) We have renamed the domain http://bugzilla.meego.com to http://bugs.meego.com to better align with the task of bug tracking and not the tool name. All requests for bugzilla.meego.com will redirect to bugs.meego.com now. This was supported by many community members and was a logical change to make. This comes as a nice little win for those with experience of long-running, and less developer focused, communities - such as that around Maemo. Much of the MeeGo.com infrastructure decisions and tools have been lifted directly from moblin.org with little input or contribution from the existing Maemo community.
