Arch Linux Newsletter for May 5, 2008 Discussion

Once again this thread is created to discuss any topic that is covered on the Arch Linux Newsletter. And if you have suggestions, please share them with us here.

The Arch Linux Newsletter team has been reduced, consisting of Dusty Phillips, Ronald Van Haren, and me (Eduardo Romero). This simplifies our work and makes us better organize our thoughts, ideas and newsletter improvements. Later on, we might start looking for Translators again.

I hope the next newsletter have more stuff on it, I am on a tight schedule since I am on finals, hopefully, next week is the last one of University.:D

Non visible improvements in this newsletter is the usual code cleanup, fo better performance, I know it isn't a heavy page, but still is better to have a clean code to work with, removing obsolete HTML code.

Re: Arch Linux Newsletter for May 5, 2008 Discussion

Good work, kensai and all the other authors! I translated a third of the last newsletter into german but it never got published sad I'm still waiting for an answer from the other translators. Due to time constrains and the disappointment after my last attempt to contribute something to the german Arch community I'm retiring from my "translator job".

Is ok man, I know translators had a pretty rough job, even I would have not touched it. The previous newsletter was huge, hence why there were no translations, that job is to be resumed after a while, when we get a way to organize things a bit more. Thanks anyways for the interest so far.


@ Cerebral, Thanks.

@ Cerebral, Thanks.

No you got me wrong. I've had my part translated and sent it to "someone" (Who is irrelevant).

No I didn't I knew you did your part. Thank you for the job, man.

A bit of some news here, the newsletter is going to be converted to git from svn, so thats part of the organization. Thanks to Linus Torvalds for making this great utility called git.

I think that the explanation Dusty gave about community contributions should be put in a sticky thread, to easily link it.

Re: Arch Linux Newsletter for May 5, 2008 Discussion

Hi guys, someone pointed me to the fact that the two questions that I do on the Arch Linux Newsletter interview, Are you addicted to tacos? and Do you think Aaron Griffin can lift a car over his head? are being over used. As much as I agree, I still want to hear all you opinions about it, should I stop asking those two questions? I just kept asking them because I thought it might be interesting to hear the answers of thos questions by all of the developers, they sometimes tend to come up with some funny stuff. But, well, is your call guys, you tell me.

Re: Arch Linux Newsletter for May 5, 2008 Discussion

Totally off topic but Dusty is banned? WTF? I was about to say i love Dusty's contributions to the newsletter.
Regarding kensai's question: if you are gonna replace those two questions by other ones yes. Otherwise no.

LOL, it is a joke to him, he hasn't seen it I guess, but he is not banned, it is just his title. big_smile Yeah, his contributions are top notch.

So people, keep commenting on the two questions. Don't go off topic, Dusty will know when the time comes. big_smile

Re: Arch Linux Newsletter for May 5, 2008 Discussion

I'm focusing on newsletter contributions and the Arch Schwag shop now, leaving the forum moderation to newer and more interested members (who are doing a terrific job). My new title was apparently set by Simo and Eduardo when I asked to have my admin privileges revoked.

Re: Arch Linux Newsletter for May 5, 2008 Discussion

I changed your title Dusty. I couldn't look at the 'Banned' tags anymore. (Shame on Simo!)
I also couldn't decide between 'Veteran' or 'Senior Taco Taster', so I put both tongue
Let me know which one is more appropriate, unless having both is best.

Probably 'Arch Merchant' or some play on the Schwag shop would be most suitable. 'Kensai's English Grammar Mechanic' is simply too long. :-D
