Have many of the past/present official developers have been contacted - and what sort of response has there been?I try to contact all of them, i send all the former developers a mail, and also lot of people who are on the contribute-list.
The former developers nobody responded. I talked with one on Facebook, and he has no more intrested in Pardus.
The contribute-list, few of them responded, mostly testers.
Any feedback from groups or developers about a central hub of focus?The feedback is: First stable x64 and x86 repo, stable root system and then build an ISO based on this.
After that they focus more on creating community and teams.
The developers with a playgroud are: badibere, pantera, kuftkufti, marcin, metalmanbaris, namso, richdb, sezaiyorum and yusuf.
Has it now been 100% decided that it is pointless having any involvement with the official project and that Anka is going to form as a basis for the development of the ‘community edition’ of Pardus?Not decided yet.
