Hm.

I suppose, it was a very bad decision to create so much new puppy's and derivates based on Ubuntu as the old sources and binaries of old versions of Ubuntu are old between only a few month!

I have the 13 (+ 1 bonus) DVD's of Debian Jessie 8.10 (dec. 2017 !) at home... They includes the sources.

Who is having the same for Unicorn (one of the Ubuntu level most used at Puppy to create new Puppy's or Quirky's including being somewhat really special (all in kernel etc.). I have here 3 complete Puppy's/Quirky's, complete, that means with devx!)?

But

no adequate sources and Ubuntu did already shrink the depositories!

how to find the (adequate, of course) sources now?

why is Puppy based on exotic software?

is that a power or an error?

Subject description: Are you speaking about artfulpup ? ask Peebee the answer.
 

is your car obsolete because a new version has just been released ? LTS versions are supported a long time, seasonal ones only six months, by official Ubuntu .. Multiverse and universe are independant from official, and support what they like.
What you say can be true or false, depends on what seasonal version is concerned.
Are you speaking about artfulpup ? ask Peebee the answer.

the especially problematic version was ubuntu Utopic Unicorn 14.10

the puppy world did develop a lot with that version, things being, yes, it is so, really about "utopic"

but now they are simply

dead

if you don't can find again the adequate sources Idea !

perhaps sources are yet available at an hidden (or open) point of the web Question

unicorn is not better or worse than others flavors. Simply some Puppy members worked with it stronger as tahrpup
or Lucid.. because these versions were installed for real usage, and you cannot reinstall each time a new version is released, as your car.

Yes the souces are on the web.
There are 4 different source .iso images that are each 4GB that represent different create times during developement.
If these are what you look for.

But if that is 'true', 'hamadoudou', then it is a result you have encouraged since your statements often object about developers discussing developer issues. You want working software for 'passengers', but don't seem to get the point that original software for 'passengers' has to be actively developed and that development is the difficult part (not the talking about already developed and working software applications).

Yes, there is plenty of already developed software available from the Ubuntu repositories (and similar from the Debian repositories).
