It's nice to watch the direction of your journey :)
You've gone the same way so many fellows went before..
So... Welcome to the root ;)

Are we dying?*puzzled* would be new to me...
You should really visit #lunar sometimes(although it may take some time 'till
others realize you've written something - so stay in there a couple of hours)

Which mirrors are you talking about?
You know of `lvu edit <module>` and `lvu submit <module>`?
The first one allows you to modify a module in the moonbase,
the later one to submit it to an queue, where (most of the time ;))
developers are listening who apply your submission to moonbase if everything
is fine. Feel free to contribute your changes this way.

Which documentation are you missing - not that there would be much to document.
There's `man lfirsttime` telling you about `lin`, `lrm`, `lvu`, `lunar`
and there are a couple of interesting files in
/var/*/lunar (shell scripts, log files, moonbase, dependency-files, ...),
and there is /etc/lunar.
That's everything a full installation knows about lunar I'd say,
so why writing documentation of files everyone can read in a day..?

Concerning the forum... afaik lunar doesn't attract a lot of people,
who like Web2.0, so just stay with the mailinglist.
There are few mails per week, but that doesn't imply nobody is listening. :)

Feel free to do so..

We really should discuss this on IRC...

I suppose I missed something, if you do..
