There seem to be three distinct things being discussed, and I'm not
sure everyone is on the same page (this is an observation, and it
could be that *I've* got entirely the wrong end of the stick):
1) Create a self-governing, non-profit legal entity for maemo.org. It is
unclear (to me), what this would accomplish.
2) Relicense Maemo under a "Qt style licence". This would _appear_ to be
asking Nokia to open up source code they've said they haven't got the
staff or motivation to do.
3) Get a permanent licence grant for maemo.org to ship Nokia binaries
(e.g. flasher, firmware) and use them in the build process (SDKs in
autobuilder and COBS). This would have practical advantage and
requires formalising something permanently which is already happening. >> Whatever it is, I believe we can progress better moving this to a TMO

I would suggest that an IRC meeting is useful after initial
brainstorming/scene setting so that any specifics can be discussed.
However, to get people roughly aligned would be better done via the
mailing lists (the quoting and threading opportunties are better than
TMO for this, I think, but as long as there's a core conversation in a
single place, that's fine).
