    source code

    Hello,

    I was wondering if UCE are providing their own source code and if so where it was?

    Thanks!

    Ubuntu CE

    Re: source code

    Basically, Ubuntu CE is just Ubuntu with some packages preinstalled. The source code is available from the induvidual packages web sites. The only ones I am not sure about are the Dansguardian GUI, gVerse and the artwork. The base source is the same as the default Ubuntu.

    Re: source code

    Is it a official project of Ubuntu/Canonical?

    Unless it is a offical product/project then it would mean it is something else. Being something else would mean that it is a seperate distro and therefore they would need to provide their own source code I would think.

    I'm sure it is NOT an official project of Ubuntu/Canonical, but I don't believe that it automatically follows that they need to release source code since they are using the same binaries from the same repositories as everyone else. What is there to release?

    Re: source code

    Like meng said, Ubuntu CE is not an official project of Canonical, but it shares the same base, just a few added packages. If you want the source, you may be able to ask mhancoc7, but I don't see anything wrong with not having it posted as a whole. It was never meant as a completely separate distro as far as I know, just a pre-configured version of Ubuntu.

    Re: source code

    They have their own ISOs, the downloads are from various locations (not ubuntu/canonical), you cannot order the cd from shipit yet you can order it from other places, the origin is USA not the Isle of man so....seperate I would say. The source has to come from the same place as the binary. Just saying the source is "somewhere" is not good enough. Also, if they are shipping a cd by mail the source also has to be available by mail. It isn't overly burdensome to provide source after all.

    Re: source code

    I'm pretty sure Jereme has the source code available (perhaps he can put a tarball up of the Ubuntu CE specific parts). Most of the stuff are scripts so the source is right there. I'm pretty sure that everything that require source code to be available has them available from Ubuntu repos. The only thing that might be a possible question is the Ubuntu CE specific stuff that Jereme has written. It might be a good idea to keep a local mirror of the dapper and edgy source handy though, just to make sure.

    Actually, the only thing that isn't really somewhere else is the Dansguardian GUI, and he has a .deb available here, and would probably give you the source or a place to find it if you need it.

    The source for 99% of Ubuntu CE is the same as that of Ubuntu. I contacted the leader of the Mepis project about this very question. The explanation that I received is that since Ubuntu CE uses the same binarys and repos then the source can be available from Ubuntu.

    Now the extra packages (Dansguardian GUI, Ubuntu CE Installer, etc) have the source installed with them in their respective directories.
