After some consideration, I have decided to accept my nomination as a
candidate for the Maemo Community Council.
Like everyone else, I also have my share of personal commitments and
other issues. However, I will be happy to give back to the community by
handling Council duties as far as my circumstances will allow.
I joined the community sometime in 2010, eventually obtaining my N900
the following year. Needless to say - this opened up a completely new
world to me. For example, I had never before experienced what being in a
community really meant. At the time I was still very new to Linux, and
can say that Maemo taught me all I know today about Linux (maybe even
computing in general).
Unfortunately I do not have much technical know-how, but with the help
of the community, I have been able to contribute by compiling a
perl-enabled irssi and obdgpslogger. I also participate in testing,
especially cssu-devel packages. Of course, I also enjoy interacting with
the Maemo community as a whole on IRC and on talk.maemo.org by answering
questions whenever I am able.
I am looking forward to other ways to keep this great community alive.
