Thanks for the replies... I liked very much the idea behind comar, it might be used to implement a settings migration system (maybe with some information that comes with different versions of the packages) and a settings  version repository.
I would be interested in working in that.

Btw, I also had a question about Pardus's flexibility: It seems to be desktop oriented, how flexible it is in letting users do configuration via console and tweeking the system (modifying the kernel, installing different filesystems, etc)? (Again, I come from Gentoo, Im used to flexibility, and as an advanced linux user I like to mess/play with the system)

I also think that some things that would also be very good (and I dont know if they are available in Pardus) are:
* A server edition
* Experimental repositories (like Gentoo's masked packages or arch's AUR)
* More info about COMAR (I dont quite understand it. Does it merge configuration files?, does it keep version control on configuration files?)

I'll probably think of others right after I post this, but I'll write them down somewhere to talk about them later.
I haven't have the time to backup my info and get a partition for Pardus, but I'll try it out ASAP

Thanks for the reply. Pardus seams to be a really serious distro. I like that. I was reading the article on how to aply to be a developer and it says that you have to have worked on Pardus. How does a non-developer contribute to Pardus? btw: where is the mailing list? (please tell me it is in English  Wink)

Hello,
I'm a user coming from Gentoo and I've been searching for a new distribution to switch to (though I really like Gentoo, but it is simply not moving forward anymore). I've considered ArchLinux as an alternative and have recently found Pardus which seems very interesting...
...But I still have some issues:

* Where is the documentation?. I struggled with the website to find documentation and finally found some articles explaining PiSi, COMAR, etc; but I failed to see documentation on setting up advanced software like LDAP, cacti, openvz, even beryl!, among others (either everything just works or theres a need for larger docs. i.e. a wiki, a packages website, introductory articles...).

* How big is the user base? can users easily contribute to the distribution? is there a user-submitted package repository?

* Why does one need to write XML to write packages? Once I read that "making humans write xml is sadistic". I totally agree. Since the distribution is greatly based on python: have you considered something like: SLiP http://slip.sourceforge.net/?

* The web site seems like a closed source project (hehe). It doesn't seem to aim to user inclusion. (Though it is quite pretty)

* Why not use English as primary language? I understand it is a Turkish distro (I'm Venezuelan and my primary language is Spanish), but it would help making the distribution available to more people (I found documentation for many things but in Turkish)

I did like Pardus a lot, and am going to give it a try, but I'm really concerned about the user inclusion in the distribution. I would gladly join the developers if I find the distribution to be open to new users and contributions.

I would love to see Pardus become a distribution with the openness of Gentoo for advanced users but easier for the general user.
