Good Weekend All,

Thursday's IRC meeting went well. Thank you for all those who attended. For those who did not have an opportunity, join us for upcoming meetings in April where we will be discussing development further. I wanted to open this thread before we start talking about development for the next release and discuss prioritizing for the future.

With each of the last three releases of blag, we should have been in a better position to ensure that we moved into a cycle of consistently releasing. As a result, we loss our endorsement as one of the Free GNU/Linux distros.It is always nice to start fresh and this time around, we will be work collectively to ensure that we have infrastructure for the development of the OS.

Our community consist of not just a distribution, but our site, wiki, bug tracking and mailing list. They are working, but we need help maintaining them in the present and future. Since, the site and forums see the most activity, how can we better use them for discussion. In regards to the mailing list, I plan to move back to the original format of the blag-announce, blag-devel and blag-users mailing list, but have also been considering whether setting up an instance of Statusnet 1.1.1(not pump.io), for the community to discuss with each other and also different teams working together as a means to share what is happening in the community as well as share what is happening in the world each us live in.

Please add your suggestions here for what areas of development, you want to see us move in for the future.

Enjoy your day ahead!

Thanks Tearms ;-)

The major concern today is privacy and having some form of online protection against ISP data retention,NSA & government spying.


Could Tor,IP2,bit-message (or any other equivalent that respects Gnu/Gpl license) be included?

Selinux also raises certain issues/questions -enabled or disabled by default?

selinux was disabled by default in early versions of blag and has always remained that that way. tor is typically included in the repos.

both selinux and tor have connections to the NSA and there has not been any active discussion about its exclusion. we need to visit that discussion.

I use the torbrowser bundle, but configuring tor for your system involves awareness about how packages on your system (e.g bittorrent, gtk-gnutella)may contradict the purpose you are using it for. reading the documentation is a good place for anyone to start.

In the case of the site, wiki and forums, maybe we can have that discussion as well.

The links below are for historical references to early conversations and concerns.


Enjoy your day ahead!

Thank you Tearms for your valuable insights ;-)

Am actually disabling Selinux which is by default in Freed-ora & GdNewHat.My point of view is from a real beginner ( i bought my 1st PC only 11months ago ..i have been a manual worker most of my life so configuration rpms or packages ect..is something really not natural for me may it never will be!:)

I'm very happy with the fact that Blag is "finally"having some perspective for the future.

The wiki is over-saturated with spam(Junichirô did mention that too ie having no Anti-spam on it and the astronomic quantity of it as well ) by example

Random page search give's same sort of result.

Registered users some 59,673 looks mostly like spam.

I don't mind doing some ""cleaning up"to start with;-)

displays one's IP or demands cookies enabled (i guess it's the actual spam protection)
I would need some form of access to suppress those undesired spam.

Best Regards

It's been a long time between the release of a Blag OS never the less some of us never gave up that there will be another Blag release.
Blag is like fine wine it takes time to produce and the longer it takes the better the result and I know this next Blag will fulfill everyone expectations, at this present time we are few but we are determined.

I give thanks for Tearms his effort and energy has inspired us all and I and all other Blaggers will be forver saying a big thank you to Tearms.

Heres' looking to a next 12 years, Long Live Blag.

If it hurts it's because you're alive.
