Re: Version names of ReactOS

I suggest the names of the atoms in the same sequence as they reside in the table of elements.
So start it with "hydrogen"... for 0.4

Then, when a feature needs to be implemented out of trunk, ...., a "branch" is created to keep these changes out of the main ReactOS source. Are the feature-branches complete source trees or only source which is altered by the separate feature development? Can i do complete rosbe build process with...

MS employees? No-go for those who have access to MS$ code

I personally think Microsoft employees who have or who have had access to windows sourcecode or to anything else non-public material, should in NO case participate to reactos source coding, because they could "taint" the reactos code (taint = unwillingly bring in proprietary code or knowledge, which...

Re: Nexuiz on Download! ?

As far as i know, the software catalog for the "Downloader" is a big local XML file on the reactos PC itself, so you can experiment with it and add items? Or change things, for instance to keep up with latest Firefox version updates...
