In the future, yes. It'll stay as is but will improve or merge with
other depending on the needs/willingness of other people. I think SHR
is good enough by itself to live on his own, but I'd really like to be
closer to you guys, be your "mainline" distro for instance. That's up
to you.

I don't think so but Mirko (who's at my place right now) is telling me
"bla bla" he doesn't know so I guess it won't be used anymore as
Paroli will run on SHR, and we may do a different image and/or
adaptations for it.

I think SHR used it in the past and I should check if it still does.
Anyway mrmoku started maintaining our own versioning stuff, so it can
be merged to the SHR one properly and left aside.

I did originally, then mrmoku took over the case. I'd say it's almost
useless and outdated. If you have a better solution I'm all ears.

That would probably be mrmoku, spaetz, or me.

Can't you diff the revisions? :-p

I won't be able to do any "true" thing if I have to look by myself.
Tell me clearly what you want me to fix in order to help you and I
think I'll be able to find time. I think that mrmoku will be more
available than that though and will be able to look for things to do.
As for myself if you tell me "diff this and that, merge this and that,
or whatever", replacing the appropriate things with names, then it'll
fit (sadly my time is a precious resource these days...)

I think some of us were intending to go to Berlin these days (CCC?),
and some others to Paris for the OWF, maybe we could meet here or
there and talk about it? It would give us time to debate about what's
to do and agree on the means in the meantime.
