ok - that is precisely the intention of this thread to determine if such
a review were done and if there were blatent problems then would
anything actually be done about that situation

im glad you said this because i have been biting my tongue on speaking
to that point - i regret that i must spell this out so blatantly but we
did such a post review last summer and still, to this day, not one iota
of my findings has been addressed or even acknowledged publicly by
anyone with the authority to do anything about them - (i qualified that
with "publicly" because i think donald did thank me privately) - the
community was vocally pleased that we did it; but nothing actually came
of it

as julie pointed out though, some lengthy discussion did result
regarding opinions on defunct or possibly "dangerous" distros ;) - but
the website still says that ututo is a gentoo derivative - that has been
false information for a long time - that was the only attention that was
required for which no discussion was necessary - a ten-second task ...
delete the words "based on Gentoo" - but no one has

and i hope i do not appear to be griping - people are busy ... ok fine -
i like to be busy too - but very practically speaking, if people are too
busy to address the problems then there is little point in looking for them

so most of the items i raised in this thread are those items still
dangling from last summer - the new public workflow protocol for
evaluations is very encouraging; but it is not at all obvious that
ongoing reviews will receive due attention - that is why i am drawing
this out so painfully and plainly now

that being said, i was not really asking if a new review of the new
ututo was acceptable or welcome as such - i was asking more strongly
*should it* be made the policy for it (and any other) to be subjected to
a fresh review on the justification that it is technically an entirely
different distro than the one that was originally endorsed - or is it
reasonable to blindly endorse forevermore, anything they publish under
the same name, purely on good faith
