MX-Findshares

#1 Post by nathan2423 » Sat Dec 30, 2017 8:06 pm

Just out of curiosity, is there a reason why mx-findshares is not seemingly in mx-17 by default? (please pardon the question if I've done something wrong and removed it)

IIRC there was some concern about the license for the "findshares" script that mx-findshares wraps around. Nothing too onerous, just making sure that selling our media on osdisc.com was in compliance with it. Its still available for download.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.
