Subject: DeMuDi Agnula
Contrary to the general rule, where
silence = dead project, DeMuDi is in fact more than alive, and in very
good shape....:-)

DeMuDi is now part of a project funded by the European Community,
called AGNULA,

That is a two year finded project, started on April 2002 till, of
course, April 2004.

First official release 0.9 for DeMuDi Agnula is due by November 2002
(which means very soon for us maybe too far if you are impatient...).

While from very soon till November you will be able to start to
download packages from our servers, the official release will be
available at the end of the same month, on CD, Network etc.

There will be important changes, starting with the Graphical
installer, plus decumentation, examples and tutorials.
It will be still based on Debian (woody, with en eye on sid...).

I'm sorry i never upgraded the site nor the news section, but i have
been very busy working for agnula.

Lates news are always available on, and soon this site
too,, will go back to its older splendor...:-)

thank you,

Subject: Mailing Lists and More
As you probably noticed the mailing lists are down...
It has been like this for a while. We had some problem with our original server
We are working to get up a couple of new servers. We should be back sometime during this week.
DeMuDi has been presented and distributed to the ICMC2001 and it was
well received with a lot of interest. It certainly needs a lot of tuning and we
are already working on bugs and other fixing.
As soon as the mailing lists will be working again, also your input and your bug reports will be very important, as well as for your contribution to the project.
Sorry about this black out, this was basically to say that the
project is alive and we are working.
Thank you,

Subject: First ....something availabl
I don't know if it is correct to call it it is our alpha stage.
This is the first real appearance in the world for DeMuDi...
(cds after the ICMC)
It __should__ work while, in any case i would NOT NOT install this in your main disk.
Place it in another partition, if you can, or another disk and try it, play and report
bugs...(give us two days to set up the list for bug not send them to the
already existing lists, just to avoid confusion).

Other ...minor problem:
the image is 557MB

and if you use debian put in your

deb woody local

you should be able to see all thelocal pakages.

MANY THANKS to: Guenter Geiger who did a tremendous job
and to ATNET the Austrian provider who is kindly hosting the distribution

Have fun... (marco trevisani
