This is not directed toward anyone that has posted as I think all have in some fashion; be it coding or updating docs something, support. I know Tom, Awokd and Unman have.
To me the only ones I feel have a right to comment on this specific topics are people that have at least contributed to the project. I am not saying I am correct but after 25 yrs of open source I have found there way to large a percentage of people wanting to be spoon fed and want and want and want. Entitlement mentality without offering anything constructive to the group collective projects. IMO that is the largest issue Qubes struggles with as an opensource project. As do many projects. It seems plenty of people want this or that even demand it but rarely are any of them willing or even capable of contributing. Of course all projects needed basic users but this project really really needs more devs. People complain about doc being outdated......then fix them. If a person is capable of loading Qubes OS they sure as hell are capable of creating or updating some Markdown pages even if it more cumbersome than a typical document format. A 3rd grader could do it. With all the users commenting in the qubes-user list there is zero reason Docs should ever be outdated for more than a week or two in any area. I have redone and created a number of doc pages and a VERY minor amount of updating a couple script and conf files. (not much of a coder) But there is no reason there are not 20-30 people that over time should be keeping these docs up to date. Tom has built a Qubes Controller (manager) based on the 4.0 code and went so far as to add in library package so other coding can be used to build. He has been super open to adding functions based on comments. If another person or two could help him with coding now that its not needed to just be python it could become the defacto Qubes GUI to manage the qubes system. That would take it off the plate of the core system devs. i plan to use his controller and if the QM does not work well I will stay with his controller. You have to consider the finances of the core qube dev that are paid. This was a huge project moving Qubes forward. Consider Qubes 1 and how rough it was. Look at where we are at now. Its a long ways. 3.2 was 3 full major revisions and many sub revisions of the same basic code where 4.0 is very different compared to the other progressive steps of this Os before. 3.1 and finally 3.2 was getting very polished and it can be a bit of a shock when you have to take a step back in polish with such a over all change. Its going to take time but the bugs will be fixed and things will be polished. I am not a coder so I will make not comments about python use etc other than it seems the reasons were memory-safety vs other. I tend to wonder if KDE issue seen are because they moved officially to XFCE. I think this may have been because of prefer of dev as users and also the low resources of devs to code. But as I said I do not have the knowledge to really speak on the topic beyond what I have seen. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
