Could you register Frugalware Linux ?

Asked by Devil505 on 2010-11-29


I've read and I want to register Frugalware Linux as a distribution.
I've created a project page but I think it was the wrong way, please remove it and make a distribution page.

Here is the required infos:
Name: Frugalware Linux
Team: Frugalware Developers

I can register a frugalware as a distribution, but before I do I think you need to be certain you accept the limited features.

  * It cannot have distribution mirrors
  * It will not have packages because it is not built by Launchpad
  * You cannot push code to a distribution...
  * ...but can push code to non-existent series source package
  * It cannot use Launchpad Translations
  * It cannot have a remote bug tracker
  * If you create series, they will claim to be derived from an Ubuntu series

No problem, I accept these limited features.

I have assigned the issue to an admin. The existing project will be renamed /frugalware-old and a new distribution will be registered as /frugalware. Your team will be made the maintainer. We can deactivate /frugalware-old when you have copied the information from the project to the distribution.

OK Thanks :)

Curtis, I've renamed the existing project to frugalware-old. Can you create the distribution, or do you need us to do that?

Curtis Hovey (sinzui) said : #6

I cannot register a distribution, can you do that Tom?

This question still needs an answer.

Hi, I have created this distribution for you now.

Thank you, Stefan
