Let's do it, guys! It worked with 4.2.x, Lucid and Slacko.

I say a vanilla Woof-based Puppy from Debian stable packages with backports is the way to go.

Hey puppy fans

Is anyone interested in working on or talking about
a community edition of puppy

I use puppy on all my computers
I like puppy for many many reasons
I'm not going to get rid of my desktops and laptops
I'm not going to switch to another distro
I dont need puppy to run my cell phone
I dont even own an IPAD

It doesn't matter if this thread goes nowhere
maybe some devs will join or help out
It will be fun if we only end up just talking about it

what puppy version should we use as a base

please answer so I know someone is still alive

by the way
I use ttuuxxx's GREAT Classic Pup
thanks Barry K and ttuuxxx

wanderer

yes i think that's a great idea

if we could keep it real small and simple

but compatible with debian

that would give it the best of both worlds

we could make any additions into sfs files

so the core stays small and simple

hey thanks a whole lot for the interest

with a great dev like you helping our success is assured

wanderer

Woof is unfortunately too much buggy for making serious Linux distribution,

even BK was tired from fixing that thing.

Is this Woof fork roar ng2 new generation two better? https://github.com/iguleder/roar-ng-ii

Great idea.
Just don't let this thread get simargulized.
Keep the MF at a safe distance.

They're different - apples and oranges.

I believe we should write Woof 3 as a community effort, but we must prove we can build something usable using today's Woof first.

Woof 2 has many drawbacks and I feel it's way too old-fashioned, bloated, x86-centric and encumbered with legacy code. However, it's too early to change this situation.

By the way, we'll need a project lead. Count me in as a developer - I'd like to help with automation frameworks and x86_64 porting.

the most important thing

is that we all work together

to produce a new community edition puppy

to show the world

that the puppy community is alive and well

and carrying on Barry K's work

as to the project lead

the people who can do the work

of course will always have the final say

as to what gets made

but i would like to see

everyone participate

and get recognized

either as a dev

or a tester

or suggester

or just a puppy fan

I like the idea of making a vanilla woof puppy from debian as a start

we can then tear it apart and rebuild it

can anyone volunteer to make the first iso

I would like to again state first of all thank you guys for the work that has been done and is going to be done and though I'm not around the forum much these days I would like to contribute as a tester.

I like the Debian idea and so like I have said before if any ISO's come up for testing I would like to make that commitment.

Puppy must not go the way of other good distros like Dream Linux, Wolvix and must thrive so all I can add is good luck with this Puppy in whatever guise is very cool

Also I wish to apologise for getting very heated over the simargl thing the other day to all in the community.
