Is this the end of Linux Mint Fluxbox ?

The Fluxbox release has been removed from the Linux Mint home page.
There has been no posts from Kendall on Fluxbox in a month.

As long as a person has the option of installing fluxbox as a desktop. Would think Mint +fluxbox will always stay an option. Just an opinion, but the people behind Mint probably have bigger fish to fry and things to focus on, than specialty editions of their software.

Would think trying to do too many things at once is a great way to mess things up. Rather than focusing on a few show stopper editions of Mint.

Keep the faith; us Fluxboxers are the few and the proud, relatively speaking, so we're going to need some patience as we're last in line. Then, too, things seem to have not worked in our favor with Ikey having to withdraw and Kendall being busy with his new job.

From Clem's blog post on the 6th, he only says Fluxbox will rebase to Debian, which we all knew, and that will ease problems with having all the different editions. So, it sounds as if all is well as of right now. *crosses fingers*

That Fluxbox is removed from the frontpage, is because it's no longer one of the 5 newest releases since Debian XFCE is out.
