Is it convenient to clean some information?
- Compile information should not be here
- Vine Linux section is terribly outdated, it just misinforms
- Yoper Linux is dead (http://yoper-linux.org/2012/11/time-to-close-shop/)
- It is relevant to maintain openSUSE 11.1 (Dec 2008), openSUSE 11.2 (Nov 2009) information? Why not maintain Ubuntu 8.10, 9.04... information too? I think it is obsolete.
Response from the concerned user editing the main Linux Binaries page:
- I try and edit the pages whenever I get a chance to check up on things. It's not as often as I like, so thankfully, this being a wiki and all, one can easily contribute when one can.
- I am doing some trimming down today, dropping Mandriva, all non-desktop-supported Ubuntu versions, and other clearly EOL linux items. Also, I'm trimming Vine to use VineSeed only, as that is seeing some life.
- The distribution-specific compile information stays, since there are specific steps needed to be followed for these distributions.
- Since Yoper is still available, albeit dead, it should be left for now. In November, if there are no changes in status, then the section should be wiped.

"International language support" in Ubuntu
I commented out this section in r42634. First off, all i10n I've tested in Lucid (1.6) and Natty (1.8) seems to be working fine without intervention. Second, there is no
--dummy-locales option after 1.6, as the section claims. Third, I don't know the situation in 1.4, but every Ubuntu release with less than 1.6 in the repository is now firmly EOL.
By all means though, if parts of the section are useful/not incorrect to anyone, please restore them. Naranja 04:02, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
What to do about the Spanish translation?
The Spanish language version of this article is hideously out of date and in sore need of a solution. Is there a fluent enough Spanish writer that can translate the English page? BiafraRepublic (talk) 07:11, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
