LQ Distribution Forum Policy Change


A quick update on our Distribution Forum Policy here at LQ. As many of you know, to have a dedicated distro forum, someone who is officially associated with the distro must participate here at LQ. That's true for all current active distro fora (Linux From Scratch, Slackware, Debian, Arch, Red Hat, Mandriva, VectorLinux, Fedora, DamnSmallLinux, ROCK, MEPIS, Ubuntu, Suse/Novell, Puppy, Zenwalk, Incognito, Linux Mint, Sabayon, Calculate, Gentoo, Bodhi, NetSecL, Linux Deepin, Studio 13.37, Mageia, Dragora GNU/Linux-Libre, Zorin OS, Rogue Class at the time of this post). To better serve the LQ community, we have decided to relax that policy slightly. Moving forward, we'll create a non-official distro forum for any distribution in the top 10 at distrowatch. That forum will be marked with an (*) to indicate that there is no official participation and the forum will have a sticky with an explanation. The policy for participating for other distros (or for distros marked with an *) will not change in any way. If you have any questions or suggestions relating to the distibution forum policy, please let us know. This change will result in the creation of the following non-official distribution fora:

elementary
CentOS

If you know anyone associated with either distro and think they'd like to participate (it does not have to be a main developer or project founder, just someone approved by the distro), let us know. We plan to create the non-official distro fora tomorrow. On that note, if you know someone associated with any distro that isn't currently participating at LQ, put us in touch. All are welcome.

That thread is over a decade old. If someone from AntiX is interested in having a distro forum here at LQ, please have them contact us.

Ah, my mistake. The LQ URL got truncated in the email client I was using and it brought me to a very old thread. That said, if Anticapitalista is interested in having an AntiX forum, please have him contact us. Thanks for the heads up.

I am still interested in having the antiX forum here. There are a few antiX users that participate at LQ, not only in the antiX section, but elsewhere too.

Thanks to dugan for the pm re this thread.
