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
Happy New Year Maemo Community! As we move into the new year, we’re also faced with a very new phase of life — that is, complete control of the maemo.org infrastructure, meaning community governance of the Maemo Community and everything that it implies (community servers and software repositories, various maemo-related software and technology, the talk.maemo.org forum and wiki, etc.). 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
We’d like to take a minute to unveil the new Hildon Foundation website: http://hildonfoundation.org As you’ll see, there is a fairly easy way to donate to the Hildon Foundation and the Maemo Community: http://hildonfoundation.org/support/ This is the same method that’s being used here on tmo : http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=1303767
Dear Maemo Community, As long-time supporters and contributors — and, in all humility, quite honored to be counted among all of you — we, the inaugural Hildon Foundation Board felt it necessary that we put forth an open, public statement about how we feel the “Board” should be considered and engaged with. At this point, the first Board meeting minutes have been published for public review. As we hope you’ll see, it is nothing but the Maemo Community’s best interests that we are concerned with.
The results of the Hildon Foundation Board elections, Q4 2012 are now official. Congratulations to all involved, and many thanks to the community for their support and their vote. Please keep in mind that the Council election cycle is still going! Nominations continue through the 28th, and voting will occur the first week of November! There are currently four standing candidates for Council

Front Page Draft bylaws for non-profit entity to take over Maemo infrastructure In a proposal on the Maemo Community mailing list, RM Bauer details a draft bylaw to change the maemo.org infrastructure that is currently provided by Nokia to a non-profit entity possibly to be named the Hildon Foundation. “In order to continue the community at www.maemo.org in the future, it will be necessary to migrate much of the infrastructure and associated elements to a new site and to establish a separate entity for that purpose.
