As the most already know is that the pardususer repo will close at the end of the year.

Is there need for a new repo? As long Anka is not ready yet?

I am already busy to build the pardususer packages. So is there need?

some thinking for repositories:
1) use only one repo for everything and who wants create a package would be an "official packager"
2) use something like AUR from archlinux
3) use something like ubuntu's PPA

Another question is how we want use the packages from solusos, in case:
1) copy an entire solusos mirror, change its name and made a "....-contrib"
2) use some repos in common with they
3) merge all the packages in our repos.

All good ideas. First we have to wait how SolusOS been work out.
And then we have to wait for the Pardus-Anka release.

Till that time (when pardususer.de shut down) I bring up the pardus whoosh
repo for Pardus 2011.2.

Some of packages from pardususer.de are already merged to anka 2013 e.g. kadu, darktable, gimp-plugins and few other. I don't think that will be possible to use in easy way solusos packages with anka because package names can be different (e.g. jpeg - libjpeg, tiff - libtiff). I didn't see soluos build files, so it is hard to say more. As far as I know solusos provide gnome desktop only, anka will provide much more.

I can assure you that Ikey, the chief of solusos, is a very hard worker and he works very well. I have tried solusos 1.2 for some weeks waiting anka and i can only say it is a great distro (not like pardus but so close).

Hi guys, nice topic

I think we need to decide first on WHAT we will support, then decide on the repos to support it with, e.g. old machines like 386's  ( which chakra is dropping along with i686 ), if so , then we will want the older repo's like pardus 2008 if not, we just go with  the newer ones.

I see a shared repo of pardus and anka as a good idea , it would allow us to go forward with anka , and provide support for olde machines as well.

Adding a D.E. is only a problem in the building , and perhaps on its integration , after that ,only in its configuration.

As far as Solus
I see that as not a bad idea, but...
Ikey used scripts to copy debian , and converted them to a pisi format ( with all the fixes and patches that HE thought were proper ).
I believe the scripts are/will be available for as gnu software.
We might , after all , want to make our own corrections patches , etc and scripts are editable.

Sure, if we can fit our software for what we want it's a better thing, however why rebuild everything if the work it's already done?
For DE, and even for the iso images, there are some ways:
1) support officially one DE (I hope KDE XD) and do iso image just with it
2) support all the enviroments and make iso for everyone
3) support just 2 or 3 DE and make iso for those environments.
About architectures i think more support there is and better is but we have to think also at the amount of work it involves, so the better thing is find the right equilibrium. How many of us have a i386 machine? How many of us have an x86_64? Nowadays just who do trashware has a machine older than i686...

Not disagreeing with you Daves , I just raised these  points for consideration.

" How many of us have an x86_64? Nowadays just who do trashware has a machine older than i686... "

Well , this month I have a ppc mac , a netbook , 32bit ibm , a old dell 386, and a couple of others that I'll be fixing...and linux makes all this work

So the issue is resolved, if we need anka on more architectures, just do this.
