Momonga Project First Anniversary

As of the first of July 2003, the Momonga Project is exactly one year old

Exactly one year ago, on the first day of July 2002, we gathered, formed and organized as the Momonga Project, aiming to create a Linux distribution that is "Friendly to Me".

Upon the dissolution of the Kondara Project, we began developing by succeeding to the Kondara Project's open cvs repository. At the beginning, we expected we could produce our first release version in several months time, however, a one full year has passed before any release mainly due to a shortage of time resource in our project.

Meanwhile we started to hear voices calling for a release of the Momonga Linux distribution from various organizations and individuals. We too believe it is about the time to finally release version 1.0.

From now on, we are intending to proceed according to the following roadmap.


July 2003
  • Update glibc to 2.3
  • Update gcc to 3.3
  • Organizing License related issues for expression and description
August 2003
  • Stabilize the release version branch in the project cvs repository - No further major updates in the branch unless critical
  • Collection of minor items like desktop icons and background pictures
  • Alpha test
September 2003
  • Beta test
  • Final integrity check
October 2003
  • Release !
