Question Are You In Need of Server Hardware?

It is not hard to compile your own package, but if you have a hard time doing that you can bug us on irc and ask for packages and we will do our best to provide it to you, remember we are a small team and the efforts are going towards Dragora 3 so don't expect new packages for Dragora 2,
The reason why I'm asking is because I work for a large-sized company in a tech support capacity and we are always updating our hardware. I may be able to purchase older (within the last 2-5 years) Dell hardware from my employer and I would like to use it towards a new mirror and/or package repository for Dragora. My goal is to see if I can setup a stable flow of donations to keep such an effort up and running. In the meantime I am experimenting with setting up a repository/mirror on my personal server (I'm learning this stuff as I go because it's fun )

The new version is coming, I am preparing an alpha.

I hope this version puts definitive daily use for those people who want to see a different and well-made distribution.

Thanks for your intention.

Awesome! I'm working on creating a new user's starting guide to set up a system for every day use.

Any time I'm getting quotes from local ISPs for hosting my server (it's a Dell PowerEdge R710).

The good is thing is that Dragora has supervision service since 2011/2012. The bad thing is that the previous version is old.

You will be glad to know that there are already some accomplished goals that increase the security and the power of the distribution in general.

That's quite alright; I come from the Debian GNU/Linux world and value stability over bleeding edge tech.

Sounds glorious I'm doubly glad it is not built atop any previously existing system.
