We need a new domain!

EDIT: Thanks to Ko Ye, we now have a domain (relinuxkit.org)!

Last post, I talked to you about the new website for relinux. Today, Ihsan Salam (the guy who set up the website) told me that the domain extension was blacklisted by many popular websites, including Google! He just learned that today.

If anyone could donate a domain, it would be extremely appreciated. The domains I was looking at was relinux.it, relinuxkit.org or relinuxk.it.

Please contact me at lkjoel@ubuntu.com if you are interested in donating a domain. We would all be extremely happy for that!


New splash screen for relinux 0.4

As some of you may know, I’m not an artist at all, so I’ll need help with this. Anybody up for making a new default splash screen? It has to be 640×480, 72 PPI, and it has to contrast with white text and a brown highlight color. Please do not use photos, and of course, keep it reasonable and appropriate.

Email it to me at lkjoel@ubuntu.com.

Recursive Acronym for relinux

As with most other unix apps, relinux needs a recursive acronym. Anyone wants a shot at making one for relinux? I don’t have enough time, as I’m spending nearly all of my time programming.

New database of OSs using relinux!

I made a database to be filled of OSs using relinux. There is no obligation at all to add your OS to the database, but if you want to, please use the form here (notice that only the name of the OS is required. The rest is optional): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?hl=en_US&formkey=dDBhdVR1SlZfOEJGMFpRdWtoQ2l5SFE6MQ#gid=0

To view the database, go here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ah5eSXyQI815dDBhdVR1SlZfOEJGMFpRdWtoQ2l5SFE.

Need logo for relinux

I’ve been trying to make a logo for relinux, but I’m not very good at art.

If you are interested in helping to make a logo for relinux, please email me at lkjoel@ubuntu.com. I’ll give you more information on what I think would be nice for it. I’ll add you as a contributer, and give you a sincere thanks 😉


How to help relinux

If you really like relinux, and you want to help out, here are some ways you can help:

  • Advertising. Nothing complicated is necessary, just word of mouth.
  • Bug reporting. Please report bugs to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/relinux
  • Testing. I’ll write a section on this, as this will change a lot.
  • Feature requests. If you have any new features in mind for relinux, send it to: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/relinux
  • Packaging. This is for any system other than Debian and Ubuntu. Please package the correct version for it. Up to now (relinux 0.3 and relinux 0.4), there is no support for any system other than Ubuntu (not even Debian).
  • Coding. Relinux >= 0.4 is coded in Python (Tkinter for the GUI). Just fork https://github.com/MiJyn/relinux/), and once you have done the code you wanted to submit, simply make a pull request. Please make a pull request for each feature/bugfix (instead of combining them all into one).
  • Anything else you can think of doing!
If you want to package or code, please send me an email at lkjoel[ a  T ]ubuntu.com or mijyn[ a  T ]mail.com (replace [ a  T ] by @).
