Puppy from Scratch
5.1 to 6

I have used the name P6
and focused on the idea of 'Puppy from Scratch'
because 3 of our developers are interested in this approach

We can start from a bootstrapping ISO
As far as I can tell the candidates are Ttuuxxxs 214x
Technosaurus 4.4 beta
and a woof built Quirky or Wary
They seem the most likely to be a practical agreed basis

That is where we have to start from
an agreed basis

I feel Wary (to be released aprox. today) would be a good choice
This is where the new ISO is compiled/bootstrapped from,
so a working devx is required

I have used the original Puppy goals

Goals:
* Load and run totally in RAM
* Easily install to USB, Zip or hard drive media.
* Run from CD or DVD
* Booting from CD or DVD, save everything back to the CD
* Booting from USB Flash drive, minimise writes to extend life indefinitely
* Extremely friendly for Linux newbies
* Boot up and run extraordinarily fast
* Have all the applications needed for daily use
* Will just work, no hassles
* Will breathe new life into old PCs

Features:
Bootstrap ISO (to be announced)
Puppy Base Layout
Every Puplet and wooflet uses slightly different layout of menus
for consistency we will try to establish a 'standard'
Community contributions
Control center
There are several control centers - in dpup, Dude etc
Quickpet
Browser choice, window manager choice
Xcowsay messaging
