Well to quote you:

Here you say that you are setting up a mirror for recipes and official and  
contributed packages. I could no see, anywhere in that e-mail, that you  
were to host the ISOs as well. Therefore people thought that you only  
would host the repositories. A wrong assumption it seems, but it was  
correct with the fact presented.
GoboLinux is still a small community and people still put trust in what  
other people say.

Thank you! :)

I dont think it's an xor approach, but it involves both development of  
GoboLinux' elements (Scripts and such) as well as development of GoboLinux  
as a whole.


PS. I am a real person, not a fantasy figure of Hisham. If you were  
offended that I replied to your e-mail addressed to Hisham, shouldn't I be  
offended when you repudiate me as an own person. Please think before you  
come with such accusations.
