Would maybe creating a Crunchbang branch based on Sid be a good idea?

I've been thinking this for a while, Crunchbang already has branches based on Stable and Testing, but why not a rolling-release dev branch based on Unstable?

When I feel "unstable" I boot up my vsido install......which is actually pretty stable.

I like #! the way it is. If I want sid, I go with Debian (and that's what I did on one of my PCs).

Re: Would maybe creating a Crunchbang branch based on Sid be a good idea?

yea linux bbq darkside is the way to go if you want #! waldorf with sid.  I personally dont really dig systemd, though im using a old q6600 cpu now, on my intel i3 1st gen laptop, maybe systemd would be a big difference.

Lol! I'm replying to this from Fedora, which can be unstable at times.

As far as I know there's only a Stable (Waldorf) version at the moment. Maybe Phillip's recent absence means he's hard at work on the upcoming "Janice".

Re: Would maybe creating a Crunchbang branch based on Sid be a good idea?

In the #! Animal thread, Philip himself said he has (as yet undisclosed) plans for Animal...

Threads about a Sid-based CrunchBang branch seem to pop up with amazing regularity.  I welcome all such discussion, and I seem to recall starting such a thread myself some time ago. cool

Unia/iMBeCil -- Sorry that your posts may not make sense now, since it referred to the item formerly above Unia's, which was copied from a web site. It was deemed to be spam after attempts to contact the user off-forum were unsuccessful (i.e., bounced e-mail).

There are already a lot of sid distros out there, but it would be nice if there was one that was official to #!. Give the devs a break!

Re: Would maybe creating a Crunchbang branch based on Sid be a good idea?

^ the siduction repos are worth gold. firstly, they have fixes when upstream breaks stuff, they have experimental with newer version numbers for some applications (gimp, inkscape), and in their normal repos they have also apps that are not in debian. and of course their kernels. top stuff there.
