Yes there's definately a breakdown somewhere. Thanks for your diligence
in this matter Josh.

Trish, I think we really do need to bring this up at the next council

I'm sure that if there was adequate coordination on issues such as this,
Josh wouldn't have had to self-host, and from what I have been able to
ascertain he would have preferred to move forward under the magiea.org
domain anyway.

I'm rather surprised he hasn't thrown his hands up and said, "whatev",

Hang in there Josh There's something broken in the community's
communication infrastructure and we may be forging ahead with arbitrary
technological and production deadlines at the expense of a quality

This is Open Source - there really is no real timeline; simply goals
that currently push for product releases at the expense of coordinated

Most people here know that I'm a Slacker, having used that distro since
it's inception, and there's a lesson to be learned there: "The next
release of Slackware will be released when it's ready", is almost a
mantra for a reason.

Things mature in their own time. We can set goals and artificial
deadlines (most deadlines in the world, with the exception of court
dates, are indeed artificial), but we should be willing and able to
adjust those dates based upon the *smoothly acheived* deadlines, derived
from the self-imposed goals we set for such events to occur.

I hope that helps :)

Kindest regards,
