All Debian patches come from debian/patches folder.
I suppose it should be ready in 2~3 months, it will depend of stability of our new packages and help of community to test our new version when it is available for that.
So, ALL debian patches are applied to the source code of those packages and later, it is built by the arch PKGBUILD method. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Great. I'm in for testing. I'll keep checking for v0.4 on Downloads page. Hopefully, it would have enough packages such that I move from parabola to hyperbola permanently.
If you have some page where you list upcoming packages (which you will be building in the upcoming week) (with versions) to be built, we (community) can build it (write PKGBUILD). I presume currently, there are some dependencies to be built first.
Also, you don't have to trust the community, you can reject PKGBUILD made by community if you find it strange and unacceptable for Hyperbola's standards. It will reduce your work and help forming a community.
Today, the forces which make richer and poor poorer have their roots in computer security. Never has it been more important to work towards abolishing the power of the powerful.
Let's use hyperbola or other libre OSes and strive towards stateless hardware (Rutkowska 2015). Let's use GNU/Linux phones and shun Android. Let's share our secrets (true word for 'data') with only the people we trust.
