So we survived 21st and the holidays are coming. The BBQ will be put into the garage for the next days, because we are working on other things (of course real life opted out) from fat to lean:
- populating the new Wiki page
- setting up a collaboration platform
- working on the BBQ Tools (see above, then)
- testing the new e17 for maturity and compatibility with the Sid base
- uploading the BBQ-related config files to the repositories
- creating meta-packages that help users install any flavour from scratch
- cleaning up the 64-bit base editions for the New Year
- working on a stable “Install to Stick” option
- doing some testing of a new installer (supports LVM)
- bring back the no-X spins for the upcoming barebones edition and base for Fresh Oyster
- setting up a portal for LinuxBBQ in which users can post their screenshots, config files, links to their own project/RYOs, news articles; pretty much like a planet.linuxbbq.org
- setting up a mailing list
So, until Sylvester there will be no fresh meat on the grill, partly due to the submission to distrowatch and the increase of support and feature requests. If you can, please participate actively in either populating the wiki (we should port well-written articles from the soon-not-to-be #! wiki) or giving good/bad advice on the forums.
If you want to do something good, please consider to donate the price of a hamburger to siduction: via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org – please add ‘siduction (LinuxBBQ Loves You)’ as subject. LinuxBBQ benefits from siduction quite a lot, and it would be fair to show the guys some love. This is purely optional, by the way
Thank you all for being part of the Barbecue. Have a great holiday and enjoy the time with your families.
