One thing that has happened is the way packages are listed in the PKGS_SPECS_TABLE variable in file DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS-<compat-distro> has been improved. One outcome is that some un-needed packages in "spup" (Slackware) have been eliminated, making the iso smaller.
A lot happening getting "tpup" (T2) to build properly. I get a desktop, but still lots of issues.
Various improvements to the PPM.
I have brought the Xvesa server back to the Woof builds.
The user is now asked for the timezone on the first boot.

You are indeed the Easter Bunny.
Hope that you can get a better internet

Anything we can do to help that along?
Letters to Canbera, financial assistance etc.

Agree with Chris
Use of xvesa (or similar - did notice you made some experiments with another system) is inclusive and a great fallback.
The woof system seems to be tickling our kennel of Puppys, more so than unleashed even.
It could well be too early to rally around a particular woof build for Puppy 5, with 4.2.1 and 4.3 offering so much potential but any indications as to which you consider best will enable and empower that rallying :)

With your work with tpup, will this make ppup null and void? Just curious. Thanks.
