I do admire the work that Ikey and the Solus core team have achieved.
This is a truly innovative and gorgeous Linux distro and I wish you success.
But you've got only one short life and you need help from as many people as possible, otherwise you will burn out after working so much.
I am not at all a disto hopper, but in 20 years, I've seen so many distros rise to the top of Distrowatch and then fall into pieces.
Why ? Because without a big strong, vibrant community, you will not be able to sustain the workload and your involvement, and your health, will fade away.
90% of Linux users will never bother to compile a package they need if it's not available, and they will switch back to Ubuntu / Linux Mint /Windows / Mac.
Please, accept help, put a "becoming a new contributor" document on your site, and be warm to aspring contributors. Yours truly, Joseph ;)

So basically you are saying that Debian and RedHat maintainers are packaging software that nobody uses, because *you* don't know anybody using it ?
And of course, at the same time you don't want to create user repositories like AUR or Slackbuilds or PPA, because of course you know that nobody uses Ubuntu and ArchLinux ?

@heidi.wenger, gnome-disks provides the same kind of functionality with "Restore image" and "Format" actions.

Herald changed the status of T2828: Midnight Commander 4.8.19 from Resolved to Invalid.

There is a little bug in mc-4.8.19 on Solus (built with ncurses) : use ALT+RETURN to copy any filename on the command line, it is slow.
Rebuild midnight commander with S-Lang + terminfo, now copying on the command line is fast again.

What happens when a Solus user needs a specific application that doesn't exist in Solus official repository, and not available as a snap ?

The package libsane-perl (not available in Solus yet) is required as well for running gscan2pdf.

Hello,
OK, understood. I will wait patiently for an acceptance or refusal ;)
I thought about helping people to build XSane the Solus way, even if the package is yet not available officially.
Regards,
