Sorry for being aggressive above!

I realize now (after some sleep, and then working some on a talk I will 
hold next week in Taiwan about interaction between upstreams, distros 
and subdistros) that branching off a Git is a *use* of my work.  I 
should not discourage *use*, even if it comes in a diferent form than I 
had envisioned.

So please accept my apology, and if not too late (if my initial response 
didn't discourage you), then please do return with whatever technical 
questions you have regarding early branching for gNewSense.  I shall try 
to help you succeed with your branching of my work if that is really 
what you want to do.

>Hope you will engage more than just fork off,

Above remark still stands :-)

Also, I still recommend limiting cross-posts to initial announcements 
and doing follow-ups only at a single list: Invite broadly but have the 
actual conversation in a single "meeting room" rather than shouting all 
out from the hill tops.  For this discussion I recommend using the 
Alioth list, and have added a reply-to accordingly.

I only continue cross-posting as long as others do.  If you want to read 
all of this thread, then beware that some of it reside only at the 
Alioth list.

If you want to spawn a different subtopic which might be better suited 
for a different of the cross-posted lists, then do cross-post, but 
change the subject line, and propose a new single list for follow-ups.
