MEPIS creator Warren Woodford said that he won't be supplying Technalign with ISOs with serialization integrated until after MEPIS 3.4-3, which is in release candidate stage now, goes final. Woodford says that registered users will get the fastest and best updates for the boxed version of MEPIS. “Dianne is shipping a boxed product and making a commitment to have a specific version on store shelves and having it supported for a long time,” he says. “That includes Debian repositories that are in sync with the versions she sells, so that the buyers will not have to go through what you might call 'Debian repository hell.'” Woodford and his team are in charge of creating and maintaining the special retail version repositories.
