Who is doing what

There have been lots of things going on for Maemo and related projects nowadays, and we [the Community] feel that it is now our turn to prove that we can improve the Maemo experience for everyone by collaborating and creating outstanding quality software together!

Help us forge the future! We ask you to join us and collaborate with us to shape the destiny of Maemo(/MeeGo) with an open heart and in the spirit of Open Source development.

If you are an end user, you can also help us with testing and reporting bugs.


[edit] Purpose

The purpose of this page is to keep track of who is doing what. That is with regards of Maemo (or perhaps MeeGo) and related open source projects.

[edit] So what's this?

The objective of this page is to encourage collaboration and prevent people from creating a conflictiong set of patches or starting to work on the same issues. (So, we'd like to keep you from "reinventing the wheel" all over again.)

[edit] Get involved!

If you start a project that you think may be sought after by others, fill in the appropriate table below with your name and some information about what you're doing. Please provide a link as well.

Thus, when someone is interested in doing the same, he doesn't have to start from scratch but can cooperate with you. This holds obvious benefits for developers and end users, too.

So, anyone who would like to work on the same thing as you can find you and your project and contribute to it. End-users will also enjoy the feeling of having professionally crafted software with multiple people working on it instead of redundant ones.

What are you waiting for? The tables are waiting on you impatiently to fill them.

[edit] System-related software

Different packages (or forks) from official repositories and SSUs, hardware-close software, platform components and shared libraries.
