SEUL: Interest abounding...
There has been quite a bit of interest in the SEUL project since yesterday's
announcement. Many people have expressed dismay, unfortunately, over the
existence of Yet Another Distribution.
I have been talking with Bruce Perens recently, and we have been discussing
the relationships between Debian, the RHAD, and ourselves. I hope to have
something worked out in the very near future, so I can tell you what is
The basic idea is for all existing groups to collaborate and create a single
core distribution, upon which all distributions could theoretically be
based. It could be called (if you wish), the "official Linux core". It
would consist of a stable set of core utilities, libraries, and basic
programs, and would be versioned as a single block.
This would allow distributions to free themselves from worrying about the
stability of the base, and it would allow package maintainers to configure
and compile their package *once*, for a single core, and be done with it.
I am still thinking about this quite a bit, so all comments and
*constructive* criticisms are welcome.
