I was able to boot the latest Solus 3 ISO on my Nvidia 970 system without issue. I think this problem is fixed.

With all due respect to Solus and the people giving their time freely to develop it. It feels like packages are rejected based on no one wanting to bother packaging something that isn't of personal interest to them.

I thought being packaged by other distributions was only required if the package needed an exemption from another requirement. For example if it hadn't been updated in awhile.

So it’s allowed but at the descretion of the package maintainers. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.

So the policy hasn't changed?

It's my understanding from listening to Ikey that the policy has changed. That a package is no longer rejected simply for being unchanged for a few years. If it is shown to still be packaged in at least two other mainstream distributions.
What's the proper way to get a package reconsidered? Since the reason for the last rejection is no longer policy.
Why was it rejected this time?
I installed Solus today using the latest ISO (Solus-2017.01.01.0-Budgie) on a Skylake, Nvidia 970 system and was unable to boot the live USB with the 970 in the computer. All distributions I've tested require integrated graphics be used until the proprietary graphics are installed but Solus was unique in requiring the card be removed from the system before booting. If booting with the 970 in the system the screen would go black and never progress. When CTRL + ALT + F1 was pressed a stream of *Nouveau* text was shown.

Artha is tremendously helpful in my writing. I know of no other thesaurus that can run in the system tray and allows the user to bind hotkeys for quick inquiry on selected text. Providing information beyond definitions and synonyms. All in a simple well-designed interface.
