Thanks for Your informative answer, Timo! I must admit, that I'm
Re: maemo-community Digest, Vol 67, Issue 9
totally green when it comes to OBS, so simple explanations like one
You've provided are really appreciated.
I would prefer to keep "branch" of conversation, related to ideas of
Maemo being defined as QT-like community project on mailing list -
this way, people that doesn't read TMO/IRC religiously, still have
chance to participate.
The whole thing is about statement made by former Nokia
representatives (I hope SD69 will soon dig this out of dust and bring
quotations here), which seems to be unknown for You and marias before
You. I agree, that it isn't most important thing *right now*, but it
may be important later.
Also, please remember, that it isn't entirely "asking if Nokia allow
us" to do that - I stand in position, that Community itself shape way
it want to maintain itself/be maintained. In "worst case scenario",
Community may separate against Nokia's will. Of course, everyone would
like to avoid such situation - it would be costly for both Nokia (PR
stuff, distrust on customer's side, bad press) and Community (troubles
with distributing things from so-called "Nokia's repos", basically
only applicable via p2p networks between N900/N8xx/N7xx users).
I also admit, that due to recent momentum in collaboration and
cooperation, separating isn't a need *now*. Which doesn't mean, that
it isn't held as backup solution - if only for situations, where lack
of cooperation may not being directly Nokia's fault (financial
problems/bankruptcy, being bought-off etc).
