I think a Pardus Fork would be a good Idea. I will use Pardus for now, If it ends I will get either Chakra or Debian.
Might I remind you that there are few discontinued distros that died and got continuations/forks like
MOPSlinux = Agilia
QIlinux = openmamba
opensolaris = openindiana

Btw I have been following this thread for a while, I was waiting for my account to be accepted by the mods.
From Malta (Probably the only user in this country)

Welcome Merkur  Cheesy

And waiting so long for your account is not usual, or is it? (maybe the mod(s) was on holiday).

But ... happy Pardus using

Welcome Smiley
I think, we should wait for our friends from Turkey and
follow http://www.pardusworld.com/ Smiley
They are not going to fork.
Fork is a last, critical stage. I hope, people with $$
will understand, that national (and international)
desktop distro is the best way than using M$ Smiley

And a welcome here, from me, too, merkur from Malta.  One of my husband's co-workers is part Maltese as his father is originally from Malta and moved to the Great Lakes region of the USA (Michigan), and I am just reading the fictional book, Young Hornblower, when Horatio Hornblower anchors at the port of Valletta, Malta.  That's why I thought of the connection of Pardus being in port and refitting Cheesy  If I had to make a guess, I think it will take four months for Pardus maintainers to go through their transition, but I don't want to guess, but will continue to enjoy using Pardus. 
It's good to have new faces here!

Thanks everyone.  Smiley

@richdb the moderater did apologise for taking a long time to respond.

@tribunal I will keep on using pardus and I am not leaving until it gets officially discontinued. But I will defiantly never ever go back to windows.

@Lisa nice to hear. It would be nice if pardus was more popular here in malta. My father (who oftenly fixes computers) did mention he saw ubuntu computers sometimes..

Hello,

Pardus 2011 family, that has made the first stable release on 21 January 2011, followed by 2011.1 and 2011.2 releases, has reached end of life. From now on, any future software updates won't be made for Pardus 2011.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this version and use

Huh? This is really getting strange .. 2011 reach end of life? After one year?
What is this?
And now what? More waiting? I just want more information and i think that should give
the community more information then they do now. I know that there are reorganization, etc
but i also know that there already are plans (this is how those things work). So the people at TURBITAK
give the community more information then just a message that 2011 reach end of life.

So if 2011 reach end of life, can the community build there own update packages?
There is still no sign for any new version ... so what are we gonna do as community?

About 10-20-30% of (may be I'm wrong) packages for Pardus are created by community.
But packages like kernel, KDE and other are in official repository.
So, it is very strange to stop updating 2011 without any news about 2012.
We are reading mail-lists, but not official announcements  Sad

By the way:
linux kernel is 3.2.2 (stable version)
and
http://kde.org/announcements/4.8/

(it is about updating software)

The message on the mailing-list is from Semen Cirit, working at TIBITAK. So that is an
official announcement. But still no news about 2012 or ....?
And its is now already 3 months + 1 month (january 2012) = 4 months reorganization and
no development or news (only that there will be some workshop, when??).

But it is not very tactical to send a message about end of life 2011 right now (and after one year?)
and not any real news about the future yet.

It is like situation in Nokia:
They had their own OS (Symbian), new linux-based project (MeeGo), Qt...
and (surprise)
new CEO is from M$. And now Nokia is falling down. Very quickly.

About Pardus: it looks like smb (may be in goverment?) decided, that
the best and the only OS for Turkey is W7. Or W8.
