Election results

Candidate declarations

Joerg Reisenweber

I'm sorry to set a bad example here but I'm very busy with managing this elections and the maemo infra and so (for now) just say: I will continue exactly like I did during Current Term: October 2012 - May 2013. I hope to augment this statement to the required minimum for a decent election application statement as soon as possible.

First preliminary statements: I mainly feel I need to run for next MC/HFC to finally establish the HFC as the mandatory part of a functioning legit HiFo that it always been, to eventually (soon) unify or rather merge HFC into MCC according to the explicit wish of vast majority of community, as well as - since I feel there's been a lot of misconceptions - to finally augment/refine/clarify the definition of what HFC and HiFo are meant to be and do, along the basic priciple which always been my primary guide for understanding of all maemo orga:

[boss] The Maemo Community
[proxy of boss] Maemo Community Council
[treasurer of maemo community] Hildon Foundation
those 3 simple lines describe it all, and their adjustment is not arbitrary but shows the "chain of command" or hierarchy if there's any such thing. Maybe "dependencies" is the better word. This doesn't mean that Community or MCC could give orders to HiFo that are not in line with what HiFo is supposed to take responsibility for and actually legally is responsible (like: "sell the domain to Samsung", HiFo must not do this according to bylaws, so any such request from council to HiFo was illegit and moot. Sorry for poor example, I couldn't think of a better one), but it clearly gives a better idea of any "mission" of council as well as HiFo. It also gives an idea of domains of responsibility assigned to each entity.

I have to admit it took several months until I fully understood this principle, and at start of currently ending term I had no idea of what's the (intended, logical) relation between HiFo and council. Meanwhile I think this concept is the only one that makes sense and can work in a sustainable way.

Edoardo Spadolini

I intend to do what I can to help Maemo and the Maemo community to continue to exist and prosper, and I'm interested in getting HiFo to actually do what it's supposed to do, rather than discuss meaningless legal minutia.
