    Is there any particular reason the endorsement clause is a problem?




    I'm also the maintainer of Fedora Jam, one of these days I'll probably get around to making a Lumina Spin of Fedora.



    Not true anymore. I helped Ken start Project Trident when TrueOS killed off the desktop version. As at the time he and I were both part of the TrueOS Team, and were the two guys taking care of the desktop side of things.
    Project Trident was based on FreeBSD initially, however about a year later Ken, the Trident Lead Dev, decided to rebase on Void Linux.
    Ken is still in charge of Trident, but he's stepped back from Lumina Development.
    Ever consider joining with the LXQt team?

    Many thanks for that information
    It seems the Linux most sane desktop right now..

    Yes, it says so in the blog post. The current leader of the project is keeping it going with Project Trident which is based on Void Linux.

    KDE 3.5( trinity DE ) is ok on resources, but its ambient is a bit outdated, to change a theme you have a long way to go for example..

    Because KDE plasma uses tons of resources( like the new versions of gnome).

    If they had the vision to go with ext4, the project would have more acceptance than it has today..

    switching over to the Qt6 tool-kit, get Wayland support in place, a rework to the window manager code, and other additions.
