Re: An abrupt End to Debian Live

Hi Daniel,
I am really sorry to hear this. Back to 2007 we were happy to find Debian live so that we could create Clonezilla live easily in these years. It's really sad to see this happening. Thanks for all your efforts and thanks to all the Debian-live project members.

Best regards,

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].
