Wishlist for porteus 3.1

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

any comments?
Yes (my opinion):
ddrescue is one of the most important cli tool for the next future. Its a perfect supplement to dd and badblocks and the best way to build secure backups.

"continue the PXE"
will be there
Great.

like for example?
wire transfer or credit card (without paypal!)
Thanks for the incredible porteus.

you dont need a PayPal account to transfer money, you could do it with your credit card:

or maybe you meant that you dont want any of your details to be processed by PayPal at all?

@Blaze, StefanO
i'm sorry but we have decided to stick to PayPal only as it's the most popular payment method. banks charge way too much for international transfers and we dont want to help them.

maybe you could donate to some other opensource projects/applications which are accepting alternative payment methods and which we are using directly in porteus?

thank you

Looks like an interesting repository. Any idea who maintains it?

My main concerns with adding new repositories are:

1) Will all packages be resolved
2) Will the repo still be around in 1 year

I will keep an eye on this repo for a while. Thanks.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
