Updated last post with pertinent links.
All listed aren't guarantee workable packages to users. Conversion lead to problem, u know. Only two ways could produce proper modules for porteus - and you know what they are: slackbuilds builded on porteus or pkg2src.
But again - it is not matter.
Maybe we should test extensively the development of neko base on arch linux and debian. And thus contribute to their development.
Switching to Arch Linux base doesn't not solve users problems. Again - it is anarchic and no suit to novice.
When user come to porteus or any other linux he needs working distribution which help him to do his tasks. And what porteus provide to him? System base is good and nice - but it is not enough. And if it even be arch at base - it be the same. Lego constructor with broken details.
Advanced users could make from porteus good system, but novice are not. So they skip this distribution and select another.
Again, if you do not know where to go you will go nowhere. Any project - no matter - software or not - have to set target. Does porteus team have target? No. Even i no see here the team - there are group of individuals which do chaotic work, they creates software modules - upload to mediafire or other file sharing - but it is the mess.
Really it is not way to do something useful. It is broken Lego way.
Currently brokenman produce lemon. It is good lemon but it is lemon. But you may do from lemon lemonade. It is quit easy. The only one thing to need - is target, team and clear date. There should be organization of working process - even simple one - to have synergy effect.
There are about 8-12 advanced users who may work together.
U may have synergy effect - and produce good system finally.
Just come together - create new topic, invite advanced users, set clear target what you are going to reach.
What it is, workable desktop? Then set the date - for ex. 1-st october 2017.
Select one DE - for which all team select. This DE have to be polished for usage by novice users. Then split tasks by groups - 1-st users let produce and test ONLY office software, 2-nd - OTHER group software, etc...
Assign by 5 packages to each advanced users - it will give you filially more then 50 modules. Useful and tested. Not bad one. Push it to brockenman iso's. Upload this new and fresh 2 images with your moduled to dl.porteus.org - then announce to news - and that will be deal.
