WHAT IS PROJECT TWENEX? HOW CAN I BECOME INVOLVED? Project TWENEX is a microcosm of the Free Software Movement and is comprised wholey of SDF members. The idea is to create a central catalogue of software for use on SDF and other systems. While there are no platform restrictions, it is required that all software is free of the restrictions of Open Source and other licenses. Why TWENEX? Because this is about HACKING and TWENEX (as well as other systems and the communities built around them) were always about HACKING. Its meant to be used reverently, with respect to those who worked on the PDP-8, PDP-10, Multics, LISPM(s) and other interesting computers. It is also meant as a history lesson to show the misguided that real HACKERS care about people and do not participate in criminal or malicious activities. You can become involved by writing free software. If you are a MetaARPA member on SDF, you can install your own software in the appropriate directories so all users can benefit. If you don't program so well, you can participate by critiquing software from a user's point of view. For now, the official site is http://twenex.net. This is the portal to the catalogue, source and comments. As well, all software associated with the project is kept in /sys/sdf. There is a BBOARD named 'TWENEX' for members to communicate and make announcements.
