Thank you for the comments your give here.
But you also must understand how the community look at all of this.
And sure, we all want the best for Pardus, but some people at TUBITAK
are not really doing there best for Pardus. This is how i look at the whole
And the developers whole are left, and i think you are one of them, we like to
help them. But if you want the power of the community, TUBITAK must also
let the community in. Ask what the community want and what the community
I can imagine that there maybe want something like Red Hat did before, make
a kind of community Pardus edition (like Fedora).
But the way the act right now not give any signal for this. Dropping developers
not look like, yeah ... we want continue with Pardus.
And end of march ... sorry .. we already wait for 4 months, and the
mesaage we get was: Pardus 2011 is end of life. Why not also wait 2 months with
the end of life message.
But this message is allready getting to long. So tell me, does the
people who are
leading TUBITAK have any idea that they are destroying the juwel that they still
have? Pardus is a special linux distrobution, that also can be use in
a political way
if they want. Special in this period where Europe talk about privacy, etc.
So Gökhan tell us how we can help the developers that are left? But i
think we are
already to late, because to much developers allready left the project,
or there must
be some way to get them back.
