I removed the package from the DOSEMU_Reborn project. I asked
Launchpad how to delete the whole project, so that project will be
closed sometime soon. I convinced the Wikipedia users to change the
abandonware status to active, so the DOSEMU Wikipedia page now shows
that DOSEMU is active.
I would like to help DOSEMU in some way. I do not know C/C++/C# very
well, so I cannot do too much programming. I was hoping to attract
programmers to my project that could do some programming.
I have some ideas that can help DOSEMU:
1. We should probably try to gather up some programmers to help.
2. I noticed that the SourceForge pages for DOSEMU are old. DOSEMU has
not received any updates in years. Maybe if some of these areas got
updates, that would help.
3. What is we spoke with the DOSbox developers about merging the two
projects? Why have two DOS emulators for Linux? Why have to separate
communities when we can have one large one? Open-source software is
based off of collaboration, so we should merge the to groups and have
collaboration. Competition will not help either of us; it seems to be
killing DOSEMU. Plus, DOSEMU will not last long in my opinion. If we can
convince the DOSbox developers to merge the projects then both emulators
will do better and last longer. If this idea is successful, we should
probably come up with a new name for the merged program/project. I would
suggest PhoenixDOS - two projects disappear and one newer and better one
