What about system upgrades? I know Ingo worked on this recently, is this complete enough already? Do we have a plan of setting up this alpha release such that it can actually be upgraded via PM once we publish the next release? I know some of this may be configurable by the user (adding repositories), but it would be nice to have a default repo configured which we'll actually use as a channel for the next official release. I've personally had quite good success with upgrading (and even downgrading!) the system. Perhaps we could set up an official-release repo branch. When the next release is available, simply update the ...

quoth Stephan Aßmus, That is sure the case. So how would you go about making Haiku developers use Haiku more often? From what I read, you're doing it, as you make the web browser more usable. For me anyway, whether I could use BeOS or Haiku has come and gone with the browser vs. the demands placed on it by current web usage. BeOS lasted until about 2002, Haiku until I forget, maybe 2011. That appears to be one of the ...

2014-05-27 10:15 GMT+02:00 Stephan Aßmus superstippi@xxxxxx: What do you think, how can we motivate existing developers to spend there little spare time more often on Haiku? Money. If you earn money on something, that is not just a hobby but a necessity. Sending out a survey to all developers with commit access and people doing ports and applications. With questions how they make their money, and for what platform they write software (job). What kind of ...

Haiku is pretty amazing for where it started. That said it does need a bit more attention and releasing alpha's would have gotten that. If with alpha we have a new feature or some new beos compatibility. It's attention that haiku could really use. It's awareness that otherwise wouldn't be known. Sure we will still get the nayslayers but with them comes the people that actually care about the project and potential money. The people being negative should be ignored unless they have a valid concern. We should be pushing the positives. ...
