Introducing the Viewpoint Linux Distribution (continued)

This should’ve been part of the original post but I feared for the attention it would end of drawing and the direction the “conversation” could end up taking when links are posted on various site, so I deferred. I was pleasantly surprised that despite the announcement being shared out, there was no drama and even received encouraging comments on the orange site, thank you to those who submitted the links to the various sites and the comments.

My intention for this post is not so much for promotion but as a formality so I can refer back to here should the need arise in the future. I really have no grand vision with this project and intend the project to be a personal one. I hope the distro becomes something useful for others which people carry in their metaphorical tool belt to call on, should they need such an environment to experiment on or adapt for themselves, but I’m not looking to actively recruit developers or soliciting contributions of functionality to integrate into the project, build upon it for yourself. By all means, if there is something amiss, please let me know.

As I was getting things ready to make the announcement I looked into putting together a code of conduct for the project, I believe open source projects should have one but since it is currently a one man show It would really have been an empty gesture as there would be no person or team other than myself for handling incidents, so if someone took exception to my behaviour they would be ultimately be contacting myself about myself.

Besides the projects twitter account I have opted not to utilise any public forum, whether it be IRC/mailing lists/forums or variants of. Direct email is very welcome if you have any questions or comments, you can reach me via sevan@ projects domain but I just don’t have the mental strength to deal with public group discussions or leave things open to trolls and bullies.

Now that the dust has settled from the launch, it is time for the work to resume. 🙂
