There are people who like to start a fork of Pardus.

I am ready to get this fork going. I don't see any reason to wait around any longer. The 2011 version of Pardus has officially been announced by Semen Cirit (TUBITAK/BILGEM) to be at its end of life (EOL):

http://liste.pardus.org.tr/pardus-devel/2012-January/002330.html

This release of Pardus has only been around for 1 year and there is no announcement that shows there is any official successor scheduled for release.

They have completely ignored the community for months and we have seen everything go from bad to worse.

We need a community lead fork that will be maintained by the ever growing Pardus user community.

Just look at the massive community of users Pardus has built over the years. With Pardususer.de, ozgurlukicin.com, pardus-linux.org, the pardus wiki and world forum, we should have plenty supporters.

I believe we need to start out as a 100% binary compatible repo offering security updates and bug fixes, and then a re-branded ISO download for 32-bit and 64-bit.

[EDIT]

Well, there you have it:

And I am also waiting for the response >HERE< and >HERE< before I do any further move.
And want to read http://liste.pardus.org.tr/pardus-devel/2012-January/002330.html carefully.

According to his post: http://developer.pardus.org.tr/people/ozan/blog/?p=80 it looks like Ozan Çağlayan forked the Pardus SVN already and converted to github:

https://github.com/Pardus-Linux

It looks like almost everything is there. Ozan, will you work with us?

I've created and kept up to date at least 1/4 of pardususer.de packages.
If the fork of Pardus will exist then I'm ready to continue.

Hopefully pardususer.de isn't going anywhere  Wink

It looks like there is a discussion on Facebook regarding a Fork but so far everything that has been said is in Turkish...

http://www.facebook.com/groups/pisiciftligi/

Can someone from this Facebook group please post here to keep the english speaking supporters up-to-date?

I am ready to start with a Pardus fork  Grin

Little about me:
- Linux user since 1997, and follow Pardus almost since it started.
- I am not a linux developer, but i can develop small programs in PHP, C#, Pyton, Pascal.
- Blog about Pardus in Dutch on http://opensourcefrog.blogspot.com/

How i can help:
- Write about Pardus.
- Create pisi packages.
- Maybe some artwork.

Hear, hear!  And I quote from Young Hornblower, "We can try it." said Hornblower.  "The sooner the better."  
That was how it always was-"the sooner the better" might be found written on a naval officer's heart...


I can only offer being the Welcome lady at the moment.  But this does sound exciting if it happened, and truly what Linux is all about, being free and made up of hard working folks that are willing to help.

We have been discussing the future of Pardus on Facebook:

http://www.facebook.com/groups/pisiciftligi/

I recommend anyone who hasn't joined this group, please do asap.

We have discussed the possibility of working with TUBITAK to make Pardus a community maintained distribution allowing us to keep the name Pardus and the reputation in tact.

I am unsure how this will play out. I and others have contacted Ozan Çağlayan to see if he is on-board with approaching a continuation of Pardus, or if he believes a fork is in order. I have not received a response yet.

I haven't seen any other Pardus developers come forward and say they want to continue Pardus (or a fork), so please, if you are a Pardus developer and want Pardus to survive then please post to this forum to let us know you are here.

I post a message on the Dutch Pardus forum to find out how many Dutch speaking
members want to help with this fork.
