Front Page Time for the election of the next Maemo Community Council RM Bauer has announced the start of the spring 2012 election for the Maemo Community Council. Six months ago, only three candidates stood and so were selected without a vote. RM Bauer has been the most visible member, with Momcilo Majic and Jeremiah Foster being mostly quiet.
It’s time for the next Maemo election. Any community member who has karma of 100 or more may be nominated for Council or may nominate themselves via the maemo community mailing list (nominations must also be accepted on the mailing list). The nomination period will close on Saturday, 31 March. The voting is preliminarily scheduled to run from Thursday, 5 April, to Wednesday, 11 April. If there are less than four nominees, then they will be considered to be the consensus choice of the community in the election and no vote will be necessary. Each member of maemo.org, who has an account that is more than 3 months old and who has earned over 10 karma points on that account, gets an electronic ballot. The election is a “single transferrable vote.” They rank their Council candidates in order of preference; if their top candidate cannot get elected with the votes they receive, the votes are redistributed until all council seats have been allocated

Just thought I’d share some details on some of the recent changes I’ve pushed to Qt 5 a few weeks ago. (Yes, this post is rather overdue, I’ve been a bit slack with writing it). If you were in Tampere when I gave a short, completely underprepared Q&A on Qt 5 a few days ago, this won’t be news to you, but I will go into a bit more detail

At the recent GNU Hackers Meeting , I gave a talk about Woodchuck . (I’ll publish another post when the video is made available.) The talk resulted in a lot of great feedback including a question from Arne Babenhauserheide whether Woodchuck could be used to automatically synchronize git or mercurial repositories.
