the punch for vl6:
The upgrades of xorg and other packages (waiting for slack11.1)
VL's killer apps that sepparate it from other distros+ vlpackager as a new addition.
Change of the site's look. The curent theme is terrible and its hard to find a link to the forum,plus you can learn from other websites- add sections that are live,that change oftenly. My best bet is to integrate somehow with the forum as much as possible.Have links to latest threads of this and that. If gra[hic files are needed,i will try to provide.
There are wonderfull site templates and themes that are open source.http://www.openwebdesign.org/most_popular.phtmlhttp://www.opensourcetemplates.org/http://www.oswd.org/
you can take one and modify it abit to fit Vec.
if not Use this Forum's theme if thats not troublesome.Mimic it! I know a few web designers who will help gladly for free.
You can also add a simple gallery for users,where they can upload screenshots of their desktop. This will definatelly trigger some additional fame to vec's comunity. Mepis had sucha gallery and it was sepparated from its main site- it deffinetelly drew new users.Ubuntu did something like this and integrated it with the forum. Look around different distro websites and take ideas from them:Sabayon,Zenwalk,pclinuxOs,WOLVIX,there are so many other well made websites..
The distro's look and feel needs a little more polishing. VL-Soho was awesome...but VL-std and probably soho too dont have an icon for the tlz mimetype,which is a shame.
