Thanks to the fine developers over at Specifix, shadows are available! So, I have created a shadow of their main distro using the conary label conary.vandine.org@ken:desktop (this namespace will change when we think of a cool name). This shadow will be used to add some very cool, more bleeding edge stuff for a desktop distro. Things like Beagle, Dashboard, etc.
The GNOME folks are working on some very cool stuff, and we want to create something that can really showcase it. There will also be a shadow of this distro which will be used to create a LiveCD. Very cool stuff.
If you are interested in discussion, we have a general discussion mailing list as well as a commits watch list.
