Testing loads of software

Building a community media center and a media library in Abu Al Nomros is turning out to be a very interesting job.

I need to find decent FOSS apps for all sorts of use cases, to be ready for the future I decided to spend a few days going through all the packages available to Mandrake.

I'm testing using cooker since it has more packages, and maybe I'll get to post a bug report or two.

Anyways, I'll keep track of the packages I find promising here, and maybe later I'll review some of them

At last 0.77

After excruciating effort I managed to roll out 0.77 before the start of this academic year. This year I will be really busy as I intend to get higher grades, so I won't be that active in development. Don't get me wrong I won't vanish. I will still answer questions and collect bug reports and work on them when I can.. but I don't think there will be big changes. I was discussing this with Youssef Assad , Uniball and DjKing and we decided someone could take over maintaining the project with my help. Anyone with reasonable skill and willing to spend time can be of help. After all, a team is much better than one person. DjKing accepted the responsibility but I failed to give him the ISO before he left to Kuwait (shame on me).
