A wishlist for BOSS

Some days back, I got asked on mail as to “if BOSS has to be recognized in FOSS mainstream, what do you think can be done”. So here’s a rough list :

+ Create a community around it that goes beyond CDAC
+ Push stuff visibly upstream (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RahulSundaram/WhyUpstream)
+ Innovate and open up stuff that would make BOSS and other Linuxes feature complete respective to Indic
+ Talk about it at various LUGs
+ Don’t stop at only rebasing or re-compose of an Upstream OS
+ Enable a range of hardware (including peripherals) and push contributions back upstream
+ Have a sensible Community Relations Manager
+ Have the above put out a sensible roadmap that others can track
+ Have a above two things done under the aegis of a body who understand FOSS and not only file pushing
