Harmattan, Maemo & MeeGo community

Ville Vainio has asked where the natural home of the Harmattan community will be: “So, what's the role of maemo community communication channels (these mailing lists, talk.maemo.org) and Harmattan? Will maemo community embrace Harmattan as “natural continuation” after maemo5? Or should these channels be relegated to maemo5 and older alone, moving Harmattan discussion elsewhere?” With *.meego.com being pitched as a development, rather than end-/power-user friendly environment for specific devices and the outright hostility to Harmattan coming across on the meego-* mailing lists, it seems clear that the MeeGo project won't want to deal with the intricacies of Nokia's Qt Quick Components or Harmattan's Debian packaging when Intel's MeeGo UX Components and MeeGo's RPM formatting hold sway.

The general direction of the thread, including from Quim Gil was “let's see what happens when the device is launched” (or at least the SDK is). Hopefully there'll be enough lead time that open source software can be primed at whatever the end-user friendly download site is, whether it's maemo.org/downloads or meego.com/apps.
