Unofficial Arch Linux Newsletter for February, 2009

I don't want to step on anyones toes (sorry Kensai and pressh if I did), but I had a few things to say to the community, and some people were getting impatient, so here's a little unofficial Arch Linux Newsletter for February. Looking forward to the next official one!

If anyone wants to comment (constructive criticism, rants, hate mail, whatever) feel free to post.

Why don't you volunteer to help with the main newsletter?

Nice, but why an unofficial? Why not work together?

He did as well as some others. As I want to change a few things in the newsletter and Eduardo maybe too, we will have to discuss this first and see if/where we need contributors. This will happen after the newsletter is finished (which is soonish)

ontopic: nice work though I would have preferred a little different format so things are not duplicated from the official newsletter. I'm sure users will enjoy to read it cool

Did this make anybody else giggle? I want to change a few things with Eduardo myself... :-D

Edit: Forgot to mention, Ghost, it was a hell of an achievement to whip that up in such short time, nice work.

This discussion is making me uncomfortable. big_smile

Everyone, the official newsletter for February is coming, maybe this week. This won't hold off the March newsletter as Ronald is going to work on that one, not me.

Re: Unofficial Arch Linux Newsletter for February, 2009

The fukawi2 post is in Off Topic, so you need to login to read it.

You might want to provide a mirror of that topic, especially if the news made distrowatch and outsiders will be reading it. The error given when trying to access the link without logging in alludes not to the login requirement, but of a broken link. This can be confusing for outsiders.
