Hi devin,

Yes, that is disturbing.

If it is not the result of a misunderstanding, then I would have expected the Pisi Linux team to have confirmed the Distrowatch status by now. Also, the Pisi Linux github activity is ongoing.

Hopefully the Pisi Linux team will comment. In the meantime, as far as I am aware, the project is still active.

Sorry that I can't be more helpful.

Hello everyone.

Recent event : Pisi Linux has been removed from Distrowatch  >:(

I hope you can resolve this unfortunate situation on Distrowatch as soon as possible, Pantera.

Good luck. I'm looking forward for positive results.

Hello everyone.

I have sent an information request email to Distrowatch about recent events. Here is their answer:

Quote

I decided to remove Pisi Linux from DW. I think the project is too
immature and chaotic (it has changed its name three times already) and
it needs some more time to "grow up". Additionally, the communication
I've been receiving from the team has been confusing and sometimes
even disrespectful. I may revisit this decision in one year's time
once the project settles down.

Regards,

Ladislav

Well, communication can be a bit of a problem (even for people who share the same language :)  ). But we are working on this at the moment.

Anyway, the DW thing is unfortunate  - but what is done, is done and we have to respect Ladislav's decision. And I hope nobody becomes crazy about this because it will only end up harming the project.

Instead, we just have to get on with our work in a calm and adult manner, otherwise people will think the criticism is well-deserved.


Onwards!   :-*

Edit: Btw, though not ideal, it's better not to be listed - than to be listed as discontinued.

SourceForge reported the project being dead!

But appears to be alive when I went to GitHub.....
