Sorry about the delays on this, and sorry for missing the meeting, I am
actually on road tonight, and misjudged what part of the road would have
internet. Epub is actually finished and just uploaded it here until we
can move it to a PPA.
There was a lot of manual translation of markdown to html, and
formatting of last 2-3 chapters, so it might be best to have a second
set of eyes to check it to make sure nothing got garbled. As for pdf,
please go ahead. My plan was at this stage, converting the epub to docx
to open it in libreoffice and fix issues that way, but working from the
original odt can also be a solution. I am actually traveling this week,
so will have limited time, so if someone has the chance to go ahead and
get the pdf done before I get to it, feel free to. :)
I'd say mypaint and the pikopixel are 2 separate programs for very
separate usecases. MyPaint (despite the name) has nothing to do with
pixelart, and is a more lightweight and sketching oriented alternative
to Krita. :) As I said on chat I think it is a great idea to add it to
ubuntustudio. As for mypaint, not sure there is much we can do on short
term except removing it and keeping an eye on when it gets updated on
