U already called them. Drivers, browsers - and vb.
Other? Think what you are anyway build - that may need for othr.
I've been on the internet long enough to know that if a project doesn't have any technically competent volunteers with the free time for the latest drivers then it pretty much doesn't have time for anything else.
Surely u noted well right. But u never get competent volunteers if such policy as now to new users continue.
Hey, man - i know most u from slax forum more then ten years. U remember how TomasM reflect to slax remix project efforts. He may get much forces from brokenman and phantom - but he rejected. Quite stupid from his side.
Let's not repeat his errors. Why Neko - which contribute much - still not official developer? He much competent - it see each. Let be a little more democratic - it good undestanting of this word surely. Or porteus will go to there where slax comes now - https://distrowatch.com/?newsid=07669
In this point quite important to give access to repository for users - official repositiory of porteus. Any user could become maintainer - if he/she know that his/her efforts needed for people. Organization of common and shared work could be made later - 1-st it is quite important to get people to one place.
Why maintain bundles for some packages easy to be built with slackyd or sbopkg?
Main q. is what target of porteus? To be bad Lego as TomasM slax - not maintained, or be as kiosk which fanthom push? Or what?
For me - easy desktop - easy for users.
And that will go to
1) modules have to be 100% workable;
2) number of programs and thay types have to cover needs of most desktop users;
3) build option proper selected ( and disable all unneeded and security dangerous) ;
4) Config files already provided (right config)
slackyd/sbopkg - just wrappers to slackbuilds and official Slackware reps. It is not cover upper ones modules req. It is stupid and automatic tools. Going to arch base also give many problems - as arch linux changed constantly - this problem needed to solve - at level of official repository - or you live system will work as trash system - so all packages/modules needed to be freeze - again - at official repository.
What is - from my side. It is my needs as developer of fidoslax project. And of course I am interesting that many new developers - comes to porteus community.
Pardon, if i was too emotional. I just see porteus goes down. Several years ago where was good start but now it is going to slax. Quite pity.
