Somebody had some free time on their hands about 8 years ago. :P

Seriously, that's cool, thanks for sharing, spence.

I tried to dive into the website to see if it's been updated... but it's empty and parked...

Thought that timeline looked familiar... found a version updated to 2017/18 from the Linux Distribution wikipedia page.

Hmm, we're gonna need our own branch/line soon .. we'll no longer branch from Lubuntu (it's debatable if we do now) :)

Our branch will be the rare one that has lines pulling from several other branches... ... ... its a shame I'm not into creating graphics...

Yeah it'd be interesting to see (if we said nothing) what they'd suggest we're 'based' on ?

We're based on a lot of distros, and none....

Don't know why, though... all I have there are system configuration files.

Maybe a pull request (with Peppermint updates)  would suffice  ;)

I'm really not that bothered where we are on that, in fact I'm not sure it's meant to signify what you're based on 'now' as much as which project you originally forked from .. at the end of the day we still trace back to Ubuntu then Debian which is still true.

Was fun generating an up to date copy though :)
