Bodhi's own Forum


Thanks to the work of Gareth “hippytaff” Williams, Bodhi Linux now has its own forum once again: https://bodhilinux.boards.net/

You can read about it on our blog: https://www.bodhilinux.com/2020/07/08/new-forum/

All Bodhi users posting in LQ are encouraged to join and use the new forum. And it would be really awesome if some of the LQ Gurus, who often post excellent answers to Bodhi questions but probably don't even use Bodhi, also join. You know who you are, lol. Regardless, we will continue to offer support here.

Maybe ping a mod and get this made a sticky so everyone sees it (first) in future.

I've played with Bodhi in a VM. It was pretty slick for an OS meant for low-spec computers.

I do have a question. Why not just host your own forum? Why have it at boards.net?

They are afraid that the GDPR bugs will come bite them.
Needlessly IMO, but there you are.
Read the blog post.
There was a similar blog post when they shut down the old forum.

I agree that shutting down the old forum over GDPR concerns was a bit reactionary and in all likelihood needless. But Jeff made the decision and it all happened so quickly there was little time for much dialog among team members. The Law itself, GDPR, is a bit complex to 'parse'. I was still trying to understand the ramifications of it all, what would be needed if anything, to comply when Jeff asked Tristan (our sysadmin) to remove it. Ultimately it was Jeff's decision to made as everything was set up in his name.

As to why the new one is on boards.net, hippytaff set that up. My original plans were to wait until maybe of June of next year and self-host a forum, I needed time to research various FOSS forum software and relook at GDPR compliance and so on. Meanwhile, I have alot of other things to do. Stefan and I have a project: trying to revive old e17 modules that are broken. On a regular basis, I have to package applications or libraries. Updates may seem free but it all takes time. Meanwhile, we seriously need to get ready for the Bodhi Linux 6.0 release and part of that involves porting all our old py-efl applications to py3. I suppose I am going to have to end up doing all that as no one else that is active seems to be able to The BL 6.0 release also involves making some Moksha changes, the usual fix bugs, perhaps add new features, work on themes, perhaps find a new background, a new Plymouth (Stefan has already done some work on that one) and so on and on.

I am bringing all this up to explain why I wanted to wait until June of next year: to give myself time to deal with all the above and do the research and so on. It was based on the assumption that much of work mentioned above as well as the research was going to be done by me.

Meanwhile, hippytaff who is an old Bodhi Team member who used to be very active but lately hasn't been, had been expressing interest in helping more. One of his concerns was that the loss of our old forum and the move to Discord from IRC had meant the loss of some if not most of our community, so he began researching the forum issue. So he decided on the boards.net thing and for now, is paying the fees needed (fees are to keep ads off of it) personally. Bodhi is a Team effort, a small team admittedly. But sometimes you have to go with the team. This decision saves me the work of all the research and stuff mentioned above, saves Tristan and perhaps Me also the work of setting up our own forum. Saves someone, presumably Joris (our web dev, tho Joris has not been active lately having some 'personal' issues), but if not Joris Stefan or I or perhaps hippytaff, the work of dealing with the CSS and stuff maybe needed for a new forum.

So perhaps that explains it, probably in more detail than you needed to know.

since there is no 32-bit version of ubuntu 20.04, what does that mean for the future of bodhi's legacy release?

It means I have much to think about. Don't want to give up on a 32-bit release.

I agree. I first used Bodhi when it was only 32-bit. Great option for the piece of junk I had to install it on.
But times move on as the general dev community has realised. 64-bit is the way forward.

at least that would be supported for a while longer and maybe provide some time to figure out another direction to go if any.
