Oh yeah, I had better explain that. Having relinquished leadership of the Puppy project (well, still in the process of doing so), I wanted to go off and play with some new ideas. No particular goals, just play day by day, and as much or as little as I feel like. One of the ideas is a new distro, Puppy-like in usability but without any of its own packages -- instead, it is created by a magic script that downloads and pulls apart binary packages from some other distro. I have codenamed this new project "Woof", and the previous two blog posts are in the new "Woof" category -- I'm exploring the possibility of using Ubuntu packages for Woof, and I am downloading them all while I am in Perth with fast Internet access -- but the proposed magic Woof build script would of course only have to download what is chosen to be in the distro (and devx sfs).
