at the head of our forum, we find in the center under the titel two links:

- a Puppy home page

as well as

- an alternative forum

I find the stand of the information at the first link to old.

The Puppy 3 parallel versions pushed by josejp2424 under the thread

DpupBuster CE 64 and 32 bit

and accompanied by a rich selection of 64 bit *.sfs and *.pet at the depository

are are worth to become official Puppy stuff and named at the home page!

This 3 parallel versions cover as well 32 as 64-bit needs as well with or not with PAE kernels and so much of such about parallel Puppy's covering the needs of a very high per cent of the personal computer are not available.

The choice of the base of those Puppy, Debian 64 is definitive a great advantage as you can be secure of the future of your own work and adaptations you make as you can buy for an economic price all DVD's from Debian as well binaries as sources and apt / apt-get is preinstalled!

(but I did not find some prepared way to bind the DVD collection with apt / apt-get).

Q: What is an official Puppy Linux distribution?
A: It must meet two conditions. 1) It must be built using Woof-CE and its build “recipe” should be in woof-distro. 2) It must be endorsed as “official” by the Puppy Master.

It is up to the person that is developing a Puppy version to follow these simple rules.

The Puppy Master part is up to him. (01micko)
I guess he probably needs to be contacted, by the Puppy version developer, to be considered.
A lot of hands in the fire now developing Puppy.

One problem for official Puppy versions is trying to place them in a version number of Puppy.
For listings on Distrowatch. They want versions to follow a number flow. Version 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, etc......
So the question is going to be. Where does your version of Puppy fall in that numbering?

Bionicpup32 8.0 had to be renamed from it's original name (UpupBB), so it would be listed as official Puppy version.

I'm a big fan of both of josejp2424 dpup buster pups (32 and 64bit). They run very well and are quite polished. I would nominate them as the next official pup but it isn't up to me.
