Hi all,

The porting of the program to Vala goes on steadily.
I believe that it will be done before the end of the year. But not much before.
As you know, the goal is to be able to run the daemon in small routers
with architecture ARM or MIPS and modest resources.
Indeed the python implementation of the daemon -which is feasible only
on PCs- is complete and just works, although we can say that it passed
only few modest tests.

But time goes on. Many start to think that the project is defunct.

Many go to the site just to find out informations
that are much dated, in some case discordant, often incorrect in
respect to the current implementation.
So, they conclude that the project is dead, or not healthy.

I believe that the moment is come to encourage users (at least the
more geeky ones) to go and build a netsukuku network, without fear.

We need to convey the information that something changed. We have to
prepare a website with a remarkably different design.
The front page has to state clearly that we release the version 1.0, stable.
The version number is not important, but it is that's stable.

I have some other ideas about which messages the site has to convey most.
But I am not a good web designer.

I would like the website to be ready to be launched as soon as we
succeed in running the Vala daemon on few small routers with ARM or

So, in the end, the aim of this post on the mailing list is:
- ask for volunteers to build the website
- ask those who hold the domain if they are ok with this
- ask what one has to do, with the currently used hosting service, to
make changes to the website
