"The requested URL /wiki/ was not found on this server."
Would the wiki be usefull concerning this ?. If people agreed to stick with basic LFSS standards, and the unix model, as such, then inclusions should be fairly easy to do ... without to much dramatics getting in the way.
Different people could drift in and out, contributing units/programs/facilities that __they__ are familiar with, resulting in a possibly slow, but none the less gradual all over creation.
The existing forum could be used as a communication link, allowing every one involved in the LXF forums to contribute their opinions and suggestions with out having to be directly involved. The publicness of the forums may even attract some proffesional interest/advice which could only be helpfull. Trying to enforce some type of commitment model too, i don't think would be a good idea. It's ok for people like Mr Knopper, who are obviously very skilled people in computer science fields, have you ever looked over the init script that he wrote for his LiveCD Knoppix expression (good_grief). But most people here, though often involved in the industry, are basically hobbyists. And are also prone to "things cropping up in life" which can interfere in longterm project commitments. So a degree of flexability would be needed to deal with those things as and when they arise.. Also, the whole thing should be __fun__ and non-exclusive. Everyone should have a chance to get in on the act, so to speak. I guess the hardest bit will be actually making the start.
I'm having this fantasy at the moment ... it could also involve a "Sane Installer !". Good grief ... could that be possible. Something that allows people to choose the vga resolution their going to use, and to be able to customise the install at that stage ... all from a GU interface. Without clobbering an existing, fully functioning bootstrap in the process (grin). And with info linked in !. Or is that just pipe dreaming, ... though ... without the pipe, (worse luck)
