Resignation of Stampede Linux Developers

Many of the developers of Stampede Linux have resigned today, putting in doubt the future of the distribution.

We have been developers, end-users and general supporters of the Stampede Linux (Stampede GNU/Linux) project for over two years. We have enjoyed working together as a team and pursuing many of our own interests in conjunction with expansion of the distribution. Many of us have grown up on Stampede.

It is now time for us to part company. Due to a number of reasons based on the current administrative nature of the Stampede Linux distribution, we are unable to continue supporting the efforts of the distribution. As a group, we feel that the needs of the group have not been supported by the current model of operations. Though we have tried, we have not been able to affect change in this regard. Despite our strong long-term commitment to the project, it is time to move on.

As a group, we shall endeavor to find a more suitable, democratic forum to express our interests. To those who have supported our efforts over the last two years, we thank you.
