Hi all,

I'll assume that you are familiar with the "Woof at Github" thread. 01micko has already announced on it his creation of Slacko 64, and has opened a thread to discuss that Pup. Hopefully, the Devs working at Github on other projects will follow 01micko's communications style as their efforts reach sufficient maturity to benefit from the efforts of testers and the pleasure of the curious: an announcement on the Woof at Github thread, followed by a new thread pertaining to such project.
mavrothal has properly insisted that posts on the Woof at Github thread be limited to problems pertaining to woof or the use of Github, and communications among the Devs, themselves. There should be one place Devs can meet to discuss their common concerns without having to wade through the noise of tangential ideas. Distractions are just that when you're working on a technical problem. And, of course, anyone can sign on to the mailing list if his or her objective is only to be kept abreast of developments.
But a mailing list is only a vehicle for one-way communication. It is a human failing that everyone over-estimates the value of his own inspirations. Left entirely to their own imagination, creative people --artists, mathematicians, computer devs-- can loose contact with "the real world," its needs and desires.

Ergo, this thread. It's purpose is to provide a vehicle for us --the users of Puppy Linux-- to express our ideas of what is needed, what we want, and to voice any pertinent criticism of the direction Woof development may be heading.

Do not expect a response. Do not even expect any Dev to read your post. Assume this thread to be a user's one-way communications to Devs. Something they may read as a diversion from their serious work; something which may inspire them, or provide them with an idea which may interest them. Do not attempt to start flame wars. Ideas are fair-game. Personality quirks are not.

Hard to see how both can be true.

Substantially Edited:
In the real world, logical consistency undervalues subjective feelings.
In writing the paragraph, I attempted to capture three concepts:
(1) The prayers of atheists in foxholes;
(2) The not-uncommon complaint, "No one ever listens to me"; and
(3) The personal satisfaction derived from being able to point to "where" when later you can state, "I told you so. If only you'd listened."
