Enough of this distrowatch bullshit.
1) all this "hey go click distrowatch" is useless.
2) ISO RELEASES ARE THE ONLY THING THAT GET SUBSTANTIAL DISTROWATCH
COVERAGE (unless you are gentoo). Reviews maybe but let's not astroturf
reviews, please. Front page profile turns into massive hits per day.
If you're so concerned, buy a distrowatch ad for us.
3) distrowatch because of rule (2) is the dumbest thing in the world.
It's geared toward binary distros (unless you are gentoo).
I've only had a few weeks to reduce bug counts. Everybody's partly
responsible for this and if people write buggy code, buggy code will hit
stable unless you never want people to see another stable grimoire
release ever again. Remember, we can shift benchmarks and goals at any
time. They aren't set by a baron from above.
Regarding (2) again, specifically the next ISO, a lot of improvement has
happened that is behind the scenes on the ability to make a reproducible
ISO. We've learned a lot on this road, and I think we're pretty soon
going to hit critical mass, but we need a solid 1.0 release for that.
I'm doing everything I can to get us there, but part of going somewhere
is knowing where you are.
