Posted 06-25-2009 at 01:08 AM by Shingoshi

Ok. So I told you about this project that just drove me nuts. And now I'm having to start all over again. In the process of doing that, I'm having to make some essential decisions. The first item on my agenda is, "what do I intend to do with this new system I'm in the process of building?

I have been wanting to build a system which would allow all the developers of a single distribution to build all of their applications in a single unified environment. That means that every application...
