Topic: [Hyperbola] Going the way and packaging, the roadmap after 0.4
Hello dear community,
as you all know we are heading from now on directly towards HyperbolaBSD and our project needs to focus. So first and clear up: There will be no more new packages included with problematic dependencies or hard to be ported.
We will maintain our GNU/Linux-libre with most focus for sure, correcting problems and solve issues with you all together. But we won't add more packages like for example 0 A.D.. Yes, I can imagine that many are now frustrated but the reasoning is easy: We would be stuck forever for the last version without Rust. We have tried in the last weeks to find common points for solving the issues with Rust. The point stands we will not include the following packages and don't work any longer for searching solutions for them:
0ad: Reasoning is newer versions go for Rust in the making.
cinelerra-gg: Reasoning is the package is not compliant with our guides and won't compile clean, nevertheless you are able to build it local at your own wish and run it (when there is interest I will share everything for sure as there are no secrets doing that).
timeshift: Reasoning more or less the same as before, besides the package is also not clean at all and only builds local but not on our build-server.
We will also leave the points to add further big applications for now and near future. Our roadmap behind 0.4 stands right for the further development of HyperbolaBSD and maintaining what we have now with our wonderful 0.4. So 0.4.1 will include further additions of little helpers and bugfixing. We will also add missing packages in the pipeline for sure.
Please be reminded: This is in general no further discussion-point. Nevertheless the thread is being left open. If you think nevertheless you can add 0ad on your own for example: Feel free to do and share your experiences here in the forum, including the PKGBUILD. If you think you need more proposals? Okay do the same, but we won't add them when they have complex dependencies. Remember: We need to port everything then and we don't want to make our circumstances even impossible. The road is going for HyperbolaBSD and there is no turning back towards GNU/Linux-libre as this platform is in our viewpoint irreversible damaged. GNU/Linux-libre is a chaotic part full with security-issues, GNU/Linux is only a pragmatic approach and Linux further has turned away from freedom of choice. Building our own was from the beginning a perspective and will be part of this project. So be also prepared that Hyperbola is not treated fair. Nevertheless we stay honest and fair to all others. No need for being harsh, but facts are there said. Either to recognize or to ignore them further. When ignoring the outcome won't be good.
Certainly anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices: For a life of every being full with peace and kindness, including diversity and freedom. Capitalism is destroying our minds, the planet itself and the universe in the end!
