|Subject:||[gNewSense-users] Decision Making (was Make MIPS gNewSense from Debian packages)|

|As for making decisions for the future of gNewSense, it could be done by a method even simpler than voting:|
"Whoever has an idea about how to solve an issue and can actually implement the idea just starts doing it."
In the example of making MIPS gNewSense from Debian or Ubuntu, it doesn't matter if I personally vote on one or the other, because I don't know how to implement it anyway. :-P
If you think making MIPS gNewSense from Debian would be better or easier (for example, because they already have a MIPS version) then just start working on it. As for the name, if you would still consider it the same operating system (for example, the same documention should be used for any operating system called "gNewSense") then call it something like "gNewSense-MIPS". Otherwise, just call it something else. (maybe "FreeMipsOS"...) If someone else decides that a version based on Ubuntu would be better, then work would begin on that, but the work that was done on a Debian version would definately NOT have gone to waste. It would be used in making the new version. ;-)
It helps greatly that gNewSense has such a wonderful focus - 100% free software. And since Brian Brazil and Paul O'Malley are doing such a great job already, I would go ahead and let them the final word on anything.
This way there is less debating and more free software. :-D
I hope I was able to express my idea clearly and unoffensively.
