Good point :) Question - "What do you do for the Frugalware project?"
Answer - "Nothing yet, you stupid person, because I only just became
I'll think about this and see if I can come up with a different
question. Maybe something as simple as "What do you plan to do for
the Frugalware project"?
With many interviews already completed, I now realise that the
questions "Where do you live?" and "Where were you born?" generally
have the same answer. I know of only one Frugalware developer who was
born in a different country to the one in which they now live. In
Australia - where I live - about 50% of people were born in another
country, or their parents were born in another country. It seemed
like a good question at the time. :)
"at the begining everybody does the same: contributes random new
packages". I'd like to encourage involvement in many areas of
Frugalware support, not just package maintenance. Areas such as
artwork, translation and documentation could all do with more
contributors. I'm planning to ask the readers of the newsletter to
help the project. Frugalware has great respect amongst its users for
the quality of its packages, amongst other reasons. I think it could
become an even better distribution if we had more people working on
these other areas.
May you always be Frugal,
