<str1ngs>well I guess I should have read what archive meant
<str1ngs>Today, each individual’s control over their own computing is at the mercy of institutions, corporations, and groups with enough power and determination to subvert the computing infrastructure and exploit its weaknesses. While using hydra.gnu.org substitutes can be convenient, we encourage users to also build on their own, or even run their own build farm, such that hydra.gnu.org is less of an interesting
<tadni>str1ngs: To my understanding the eventual goal is to have to main variants of the distro. A minimal and full image. The minimal image would be analogous to what we have now. A terminal based install, where you just edit a config file that is provided (possibly eventually providing a whole bunch of sample config files) and the full image, would have a nice and simple, graphical installer, which would default to installing a full session
<tadni>with a bunch of handy tech. Such as shipping with GNOME and Libreoffice, etc.
<str1ngs>I shouldnt knock it I'll give it a chance atleast
<tadni>I mean, I don't have a strong background in or really that strong of a conceptual knowledge base when it comes to programming in-general and I was able to contribute around 10 packages now to it. I think that is at least a partial testament to it.
<str1ngs>I'm sure its good at that. but would be nice to have package data that is machine readable
<tadni>Sans the *.iso generation (which I may look into eventually myself) I think the only real big things I really want to add to get GNU Distro on my main box now is feh, clisp, stumpwm, and maybe audacity and ssr.
