Thanks, Mike! If you're taking votes, I'm not sure I see why you need to do the extra work for Jessie MX
My vote: please continue to support MX15, which I use every day, and if you have time/inclination please also support M12 and MX14.
I still like M12 with its excellent KDE usage.

With limited manpower my opinion is that M12 is off the books. In reality it has been for a long time as no new development has been done on it for years as far as I can remember. I also agree with Jerry regarding Jessie MX.

The last MX15 thunderbird (52.9-1) in the main repository had over a thousand downloads from just mxrepo.com & nl.mxrepo.com, ignoring all the other mirrors.
By EOL of MX-14/M12 each tbird release had single digit downloads on mxrepo.com.
There are apparently a *lot* of MX-16 users around.

So perhaps repackaged binaries for jessie are still in order but AFAIK we're done packaging anything for wheezy.

That would be OK for me. (But it was nice to have Firefox updated for wheezy.)

BTW I do use MX17.1 and like it very much, but it does not see my GPS dongle.

Liquorix kernel 4.18-16, based off the 4.18.13 kernel release.

Featherpad 0.9.1, MX 17 only, since Jessie's Qt 5 is too old.
