I revamped the article to the point where I *think* it's good for
editing. I also revoked the freeorion updates in Bodhi since I fixed an
upstream issue with license files. I'll be submitting a new build to
Bodhi, so we can actually synchronize the publishing of the article with
the releasing of the updates to testing. So whenever the stars align, we
can publish both. My guess is after the holidays though, since schedules
and vacations make coordination crazy.
Cool, thanks for the update, Link. Aiming this article for the start of
2017 might be a good idea because I'm sure we'll be looking for content
right around then as people get back from the holiday period. If there's
any more news, let us know on the list, otherwise, we can tentatively
aim for an early 2017 publication if that sounds good to you! Thanks
again for your time here.
