I'd love to know some thread where this release was planned and the
refused whys, "ocuppy vs etc" faqs, etc.
where is it investing resources in its own besides the 'publicity'(*).
I could see it good to bring gnu-linux to the people due to a medaithic
trend we are getting advantatges of, but surely i won't like if that is
doing the typical dispersating case (at spain at least) of every region
doing their distro for schools just for gettin the property of it, so
they could ask for subventions easier, so we end up having too many
maintainers and too few developers because peoples are bothered with
sysadmining and not with coding, which is 'overally' bad....
well, i am not willing to flame it, i am just more curious about this

is there some OccupyCMS on the way? some occupiers were thinking in a
worpdressmultiusers distro as an additional service..
we could call it occupyblogs, with not fork just packing modules,
compromised with updates of them and server service...
