We’ve recently switched from our old github based wiki to our new wiki at wiki.mate-desktop.org. Please reference this wiki from here on out. Naturally, anyone is welcome to contribute.
For those of you who aren’t already aware, you can report issues on github here. At the moment, this is all we have in terms of bug reporting, but we do have a bugtracker in the works. We’ll announce it here when it’s ready.
We also have future plans for a Mate forum, but that is at a very early stage.
For those of you using Debian, Ubuntu, and Mint, you can access the 1.1.x development branch of our packages using the tridex repo. Check out this wiki page on downloading for more info. Linux Mint also has our 1.0.x release packages in their repo. If anyone is still using my (Amanas) ppa, it is no longer supported. The rest of our 1.1.x releases will be hosted on the tridex repos. Future releases (eg. 1.2.0) will be hosted here.
We are proud to announce that packing for openSUSE has begun. Once we have more information we will add it to our wiki and make an announcement.
Lastly, we have had several individuals join our irc channel and ask about Gentoo ebuilds for Mate. With that being said, we are looking for people who are willing to set these up.
Happy Holidays from the Mate team.
