Re: An abrupt End to Debian Live

So sorry to hear this Daniel! I feel what they have done here is so wrong, but I have noticed they are very totalitarian in their processes. To do this to someone who has contributed so much though is really stupid on their part! I will definitely be forking here as prior versions fit my needs perfectly and I have no interest in being a part of whatever this is they plan to change it into. I hope you do not mind the occasional question every now and then. I owe you so much in addition to the great softwareI feel like I have become friends here with you, Ben Armstrong, and Challis. I am sure this is not the end of where your amazing talents take you please keep me in the loop and THANK YOU.

An abrupt End to Debian Live

Debian can be great.

But depending on who you are, where you come from, and who your friends
are, Debian can also be hateful and full of deceit.

Before even more of reality[0] is spin-doctored into some distorted[1]
view of it, and before my past work is being discredited, I will take
the high road and continue my work on Debian Live images on the outside.

If there is one thing I did learn over the past years of agressions
towards me, then that it is this: I am forced to blindly and
unchallenged accept everything others decide about me or my work,
resistence to the cabal is futile, anything goes, no[2] matter[3] what[4].

Therefore, after having founded Debian Live back in 2006 and having by
now almost 10 years continuously worked on it, without further ado:

  Debian Live is dead, hijacked by the debian-cd and the
  debian-installer Teams[5]

The live.debian.net server will be shut down end of month, the Git
repositories are read-only as of now and mirrored to GitHub[6] for archival.

So long, and thanks for all the fish[7].
