Linux "Irish Free Software developers Brian Brazil and Paul O'Malley have developed a new distribution, appropriately named gNewSense. Made with the philosophy of Debian and the structure of Ubuntu, it aims to be the freest distribution out there. It's so 'free', that it earned an official endorsement from the Free Software Foundation. Linux Online is grateful to Messrs. Brazil and O'Malley for taking time out of their busy schedules to answer a few questions about their project."

The first thing they need are some graphic designers. The logos are just horrible.

The second thing they need are more infos on their homepage: For example: when will be the next release? Do they plan to build only upon the LT releases of Ubuntu or will i get from every Ubuntu release a gnewsense? What are the plans for the future and the releases?

I actually like the logo.
http://wiki.gnewsense.org/pub/skins/gnewsense/logo.png

Got a good "earthy" feel to it without garish orange or boring brown. (if you like orange and brown then I apologize for the words garish and boring - that is simply my personal feeling)

Those are very good questions that I have often wondered myself. I am hoping that BBrazil can keep the releases coming since (as I understand it) builder does a lot of the work. I am assuming new releases of Ubuntu will provide the fodder for builder and we will have a new gNewSense.
