I permit myself to intervene in this thread for some notes on my tests on the last nightly yesterday: * The iso doesn't boot on VmWare Player! The splash screen is shown but is all gray and nothing happens. I've tried to boot in safe mode, too but no way. This is a problem as a lot of people would try the Alpha on VmWare, it doesn't boot and so, Haiku would appear as a... hoax! * The iso does boot on Oracle Virtualbox but sadly the default virtual network adapter (AMD?) is not recognized and so WebPositive gives an ...

Hey all, 1. Yes, I am going to be fixing the BToolbar API as my attempt to get commit access (probably will turn into 6-8 patches when all is said and done) 2. I understand it's a lot of woke, but I'll be working on it almost-full-time for a month and a half so I don't think that's a concern. 3. As I already said, I do need someone to mentor me over a 15-minute Skype ...

So I think Augustin should be the one in charge, and if anyone wants to help him (including Adrien), I would assume that this is certainly appreciated. I had sent a mail applying for this at about the same time, but it didn't get through as my ML subscription was not configured properly. I'm worried that waddlesplash is not a member of the haiku project with commit access, and it feels a bit strange to me that someone external to the project can be RC. But if everyone is ok with that, let's go for it, ...

Given your relatively new status in the community, Relatively new -- well, I've been here for just over a year now, so relative to what? To Haiku's founding? I don't see a problem with your age. However, the fact that you don't have commit access makes it very difficult to be a release coordinator. How would you merge patches to the alpha branch? How would you tag the release? ...

The only age based consideration is that if the need should arrive to sign a legal document for some reason (which I am struggling to imagine how that would come up) you would need a parent or guardian to sign, or someone over 18 would have to take over that responsibility. ...
