Front Page Hildon Foundation open letter and Jolla's response Last week, the Hildon Foundation sent an open letter to Jolla requesting cooperation and financial assistance with maemo.org: “We would welcome discussion about a relationship between our organizations… If anything, we would like to form a friendship. If Jolla would be willing to become a sponsor and aid us in promoting the open source software aspects of Jolla and Sailfish — or, possibly even foot the bill — we would offer valuable community support to Jolla. In fact, we see a huge possibility of the Hildon Foundation becoming a part of the Jolla ecosystem or Sailfish Alliance itself.” Jolla replied in comments, “We can talk on a regular basis and we can form a friendship

It’s a lot to fathom, but we are certain that if any community can handle it, this one can. Fundraising Likewise, most of you know that the new changes require that we, as a community, foot the bill for all of these new responsibilities

The launch of their official website and a slick video partway between a teaser and a product video give a definite sense of progress and should inspire confidence in everyone holding their breath for a product launch.
Today Last week I finally joined the Wikimedia Foundation , with my US visa renewed and all the bureaucratic requirements in place. I work at the Platform Engineering team, reporting to Sumana Harihareswara and having other (remote) neighbors like Guillaume Paumier , Chris McMachon and Andre Klapper (of GNOME & Maemo/MeeGo fame, what a coincidence!). I feel happy.
